This is an easy grade walk suitable for most ages and abilities. Considered one of New Zealand's most visited open sanctuaries, Shakespear Regional Park is home to a variety of threatened native wildlife. The heritage trail features the best Shakespear has to offer, historic sites, a WWII gun emplacement and spectacular views over Auckland

Enter through the gates at the Waterfall Gully carpark and follow the yellow markers. Initially the track takes you through regenerating native bush and passes by a little waterfall before opening up into lush farmland. Be sure to check out the wooden lookout, offering 360 degree views across Auckland and Tiritirimatangi Island. Keep following the yellow markers down to a busy little bay and back up to the carpark.
