Great Harbour Way/ Te Aranui o Pōneke

Wellington New Zealand Te Whanganui-a-Tara Aotearoa

The Great Harbour Way/ Te Aranui o Pōneke is a walking and cycling route around Te Whanganui-a-tara, the harbour of Wellington, New Zealand, from Ōrua-pouanui /Baring Head in the east, to Te Rimurapa / Sinclair Head in the west. Few, if any, opportunities exist elsewhere in the world to walk or cycle the entire coastline of a major city harbour, continually touching the water’s edge.
