Kaiteriteri Walk & Lunch

An invigorating 1.5 hour walk, followed by a delightful lunch accompanied by a glass of local wine or craft beer at Waterfront, with stunning views of Kaiteriteri Beach.

Kaiteriteri Recreation Reserve offers an idyllic setting for walkers, and our recent survey found that 67% of our visitors enjoy exploring our extensive trail network. Our latest addition, the "One Step Beyond" walking trail, showcases lush native bush and protected wetlands. This leisurely 1.5 to 2-hour walk provides the perfect opportunity to unwind and enjoy a well-deserved coffee or lunch at Waterfront upon your return.

To make the most of your day, we recommend starting at Waterfront with a delicious flat white. From there, head south along the Great Taste trail, circling the estuary and crossing the bridge into Martin Farm Rd. Follow the trail, crossing the road, until you reach Kaiteriteri Mountain Bike Park. Look out for signs leading you to the Coppins loop and up the zig-zag trail into the park. After a brief 5–10-minute walk, you'll find the entrance to the dedicated "One Step Beyond" walking track. This scenic path winds through native bush and across serene wetlands, eventually ascending above Kim Ora.

Continue your journey across Monster hub and follow the green walking signs for 10-15 minutes until you reach "Revelation." Pass through Ziggy hub, descend the access road to Martin Farm Rd, and make your way past Bethany Park. Follow the Estuary track back to where you started at Waterfront.

After your invigorating walk, treat yourself to a delightful lunch accompanied by a glass of local wine or craft beer at Waterfront, where you can soak in stunning views of Kaiteriteri Beach.
