Parnell Trust offers a unique programme of heritage walks around the historic central Auckland suburbs of Parnell, Grafton, Newmarket and Epsom. A schedule of guided walks is available from September to April, with many happening during Auckland's Heritage Festival. Our walks are led by knowledgeable guides who provide interesting commentary and anecdotes on local heritage treasures and the people that shaped these central Auckland suburbs. See for a current schedule of walks and pricing. To enable you to take a heritage walk at a time to suit you, Parnell Trust will launch self-guided heritage walks in early 2013. These are being developed from our guided walk series with generous support from ASB Community Trust and our walk leaders. The selfguided walks will provide a rich heritage experience combining downloadable recordings of the walks supported by mobile Apps for sound files, maps and photos, together with extensive links to additional material. For further details see

Heritage Walk Series

Auckland Domain
Auckland Domain is located on one of Auckland's first volcanoes and its vantage point overlooking the harbour has made it a focal point for both Maori and European settlers.

Auckland Domain Architecture

Auckland Domain walk Learn about the architectural history of this glorious park, richly endowed with sculptures and heritage buildings.

Campus Walk
Inaugurated in 1883, the University of Auckland grew around the grounds of Old Government House. Over time, many of the original buildings in the vicinity have been added. Today the University sprawls over several blocks from its prominent location above the city.

Perhaps best known for its bridge, the suburb of Grafton extends from Symonds Street to the Domain and out towards Mt Eden. This walk takes in one of Auckland's most significant cemeteries and provides background on heritage buildings, both residential and public.

Epsom In the Zone

Discover a hidden corner of Auckland nestled on the slopes of Mt Eden, above Newmarket. Iconic homesteads feature lovely gardens nurtured from harsh terrain. Auckland Grammar School exerts its influence on local real estate as Aucklanders vie to be in this historic Grammar zone.
