Mark this day in your diary, Sunday the 15th February 2015. This is the day Waiuku Rotary has planned the annual Sunset Coast Walk, with added benefits. Less than an hour out of Auckland, the Awhitu Peninsular stretching from Waiuku to the Manukau Heads is an area of outstanding scenic beauty with extensive views along the West Coast, Tasman Sea and back over the Manukau Harbour.

Set on private farmland, the Sunset Coast Walk, offers walkers the opportunity to enjoy a wider range of walks this year. So if you thought you had seen it all in previous years come & find some more stunning views & interesting parts of this fascinating landscape to explore.

This year we have 4 walks 5km,- 7km,- 8km,- or 11km,-
The walk takes you through rolling farmland to the more rugged contour along the West Coast. Ranging from pushchair possible to more challenging hillsides. Sea & Harbour views all walks, - Cliff top views on the 3 longer walks.

Make your way to Waiuku then follow the road signs to the registration base at 207 Kohekohe-Kariaotahi Road.

There will be a complementary cold drink and hot sausage waiting for you when you return. Bring your water bottle good walking shoes a picnic lunch or purchase an extra sausage to enjoy in the shade of the trees.

Also available is Heather's Ice Cream truck and Good Guys coffee van.

This is not a competitive walk but a chance for families to walk at your own pace and enjoy the surroundings. Sorry no dogs.

Register on the day by Eftpos any time from 7.30AM to 1.00PM at $20.00 adults – College students $10 – Primary School students free.

Over 600 walkers enjoyed the day last year so with some small changes to the route the Waiuku Rotary Club is optimistic of another top day.

The principal benefactor for this walk will be the local community projects.

From the car-park it's worth a drive to Kariaotahi Surf Beach on the West Coast for a swim or explore further up the Awhitu Peninsular to the beautiful sandy beaches of the Awhitu Regional Park on the Manukau Harbour. Check the information tent for more details.

Don't forget your camera and sun tan lotion and we'll see you all on the 15th Feb 2015.
