Pinehill is a suburb of primarily new homes and businesses nestled between the Northern Motorway to the west, East Coast Road to the east, and the light industrial area of Rosedale to the south. It is named after a large stand of pine trees that once stood on the corner of Greville Road and East Coast Road.
Schools, sport, and convenience are why families are choosing to live in Pinehill. Pinehill Primary School is loved by both parents and children alike. It opened in 1997, and now has over 600 pupils. The school is dedicated to providing a caring environment where children can grow and learn. Meanwhile, Rangitoto College, the largest secondary school in New Zealand, is recognised locally and internationally for it’s academic excellence, sporting achievements, performing arts and the quality of it’s young people.
A short drive or walk away lies Massey University, a comprehensive university offering students from around the world the best in tertiary study.
Albany Megacentre is New Zealand’s largest shopping mall and will double in size over the next few years, and it is only a stroll away. And right near the Megacentre is North Harbour Stadium for the big football matches.
This must be the North Shores most convenient location. There are two motorway interchanges to the North and South. There is easy access to the beaches of East Coast Bays and the smaller, main-street shopping precincts of Brown Bay and Mairangi Bay.
The new Albany Bus Station whisks residents into Auckland in minutes via the new Northern Busway. Up on East Coast Road regular buses run to Takapuna and Milford.
Coastal Walk | Long Bay to Devonport
This 23 km urban walk takes you from Long Bay in the north to Devonport in the south, where you can catch a Fullers Auckland ferry to link with Auckland’s coast to coast walk.
Te Araroa logos, markers on posts, and small fingerboards on poles mark the all-tide route.
This route follows cliff top tracks, pedestrian shortcuts, steps and footpaths.
At low tide only, it is possible to walk almost all the way on the shoreline, but be wary – rocks may be very slippery and unstable underfoot, and there are high unstable cliffs above you.
You will need to take careful note of the time of low tide, as there are several points where you can be cut off by the rising water.
If you want to walk the whole way during one low tide, prepare to do some
wading. Alternatively, break the walk part way, and complete it at low tide
the following day.
All walkers must come inshore between Castor Bay Esplanade and Milford Beach to cross Wairau Creek on the Inga Road bridge. There is no foreshore route between these two beaches. Wairau Creek cannot be safely forded at any stage of the tide. It takes approximately 7 hours to complete the whole walk.
Trust was formed by a small group of enthusiasts to pursue the goal of
a New Zealand hiking
trail from Cape Reinga to Bluff – a total
distance of 2,920 km.
TeAraroa Trust has:
* Designed the trail route.
* Won the support of 14 district, city and regional councils.
* Signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Department of Conservation.
* Signed up five regional trusts to administer the trail in their regions.
TeAraroa will traverse 10 cities en-route. The North Shore City Coastal Walk is TeAraroa’s first fully marked up urbansection.
