Whangārei has a network of shared paths linking Kamo, Onerahi and Raumanga to the central city. A fourth shared path connecting Tikipunga is currently under construction and further shared paths are planned for the future subject to funding.
Shared paths provide a safe, off-road option for recreational and commuter cycling and walking with the path being shared between cyclists, pedestrians and mobility scooters.

Future shared paths
Future urban shared paths are planned for the Limeburners/Otaika area as well as extending the Kamo Shared Path through to Kamo village. We are also developing rural and coastal cycleways connecting Whangārei with Ngunguru and Whananaki in the north; Ruakaka and Waipū Cove in the south; and Whangārei Heads.
Whangārei to Whananaki
The proposed Whangārei to Whananaki Cycleway incorporates the route from Scow Landing (Memorial Bridge) to Ngunguru, known as the Ngunguru Old Coach Trail, as well as the Tutukaka Coast.
Whangārei to Waipū Cove
The Whangārei to Waipū Cove Route incorporates the existing Waipū to Waipū Cove Walkway. The route will eventually provide a continuous cycleway connecting Whangārei with Auckland, via Mangawhai, Lang Beach, Waipū and Ruakaka.
The Whangārei Heads route will connect our harbour communities and the outstanding landscapes and walkways in this area. The proposed route includes the initial development of a connection from Parua Bay to Mcleod Bay.
