Love being in the heart of Auckland city? Enjoy walking? How about schooling up on Auckland’s colourful history? If you nodded yes to any of the above questions then slip on some comfy shoes and check out Auckland Free Walking Tours.

Auckland Free Walking Tours ­is one of the most convenient and insightful ways to explore the heart of the city. As an added bonus, because this organisation loves our beautiful city so much, there’s no cost associated with the tour. A simple Koha (donation) is recommended if you feel enlightened or enriched by the experience of one of these amazing walking tours.

Simply turn up, the walk leaves from the Queens Wharf Village every Saturday at 10am. Be prepared to embark on a 2.5- to 3-hour history lesson that traverses through Auckland’s most important landmarks (and it's hidden gems). Taking off from Auckland’s downtown, the walk heads up through Britomart Transport Centre, taking you through the city’s pedestrian laneways and right up to the recently renovated Auckland Art Gallery. You’ll then wander through the historic Albert Park and University of Auckland, before heading back down to Auckland’s famous viaduct precinct and across Te Wero Bridge, concluding among the hustle and bustle of the always-interesting Silo Park.

For more information check out the Auckland Walking Tours website to stay up to date with this fantastic collective.
