Tamaterau Coastal walkway

Signage for Devonshire Park at the start of the Tamaterau walkway.

This short coastal walk follows a trail of mature pohutukawa trees as it hugs the rocky harbour coastline, with views toward the upper harbour. 

It has some surfaced and some mown grass parts and is easily accessible under most weather conditions. 


There is a public carpark at the far end of the beach, that gives access to the Devonshire Reserve and the start of the track.

What to expect

  • A good walking surface which will suit many less able visitors, but there is a gradient when leaving the car park.
  • This is a gentle, peaceful walk with good facilities, including toilets.

Tamaterau to Scott Road walkway

The walkway begins behind the ‘Devonshire Reserve’ sign in the car park at Tamaterau. 

After an initial short rise, the surfaced path levels to follow the coast under the canopy of mature pohutukawa trees. 

Half way along, the walkway opens to become a wider, mown grass reserve. It ends at the attractive boat ramp, at the end of Scott Road.
