Fossil Point to Thorne Bay

Fossil Point to Thorne Bay

The section of the North Shore Coastal Walk / Te Araroa from Fossil Point to Thorne Bay is the most rugged section, as it undulates around a particularly rocky section of the coastline. The track runs immediately between the high water mark and the private properties that front the coast.

Along the way, you may spot further evidence of the Pupuke eruption. Shortly before Thorne Bay, there is another larger rocky outcrop which is part of Takapuna Reef. The numerous large rock pools as the tide goes out are interesting, so take your time to do a bit of exploring.
