Walk

Porirua has more than 100 kms of walking tracks that traverse the coastline, bush, city, farmland, wetlands, and historic sites.

There are dozens of walks in the greater Porirua area from Pukerua Bay in the north to Kenepuru in the south, from Belmont and Battle Hill Regional Parks in the east and Titahi Bay in the west.
