Te Henui Walkway, Strandon, New Plymouth 4312, Taranaki, New Zealand
This is the more popular of New Plymouth’s two river walkways. Te Henui winds its way up from the coast through a variety of native and exotic flora, and past several picnic areas and swimming holes.
It extends from the coast at East End Reserve to Welbourn and follows the scenic Te Henui River. On the way you pass by historical pa sites and a wide range of flora and fauna. Gazetted as a national walkway, Te Henui is one of the most beautiful walkways in New Plymouth District and yet, incredibly, it originates from a sewage pipe route.
