A peak bagging trip to the dual summits of Mt William and Puketutu provides an easy walk just south of Auckland's Bombay Hills. You can take a short detour to a kauri grove, and at the summit you will be rewarded with views of the Firth of Thames and the west coast.

For more details on the walk, see DOC Mt William walkway page

Getting There

Car

Simply head south out of Auckland (assuming that's where you're coming from!) and turn on to State Highway 2 as if going to the Coromandel. About 1.5 km east of the SH1/SH2 intersection, turn into Irish Rd, and then left into McMillan Rd.

If you want to start from the Puketutu end of the walk, take the Beaver Rd exit off SH1, and drive along Beaver Rd East, turn right on to Razorback Rd, and then left into Puketutu Rd.
