Point2Point Plogging is ALL about the wellbeing of walking tall with your whanau. Point2Point Ploggers are encouraged to talk whilst they walk, whilst also trying to maintain a pace of between 4 and 6 km an hour (between 10 and 15 minute kilometres).

#P2P30 is an annual walk right through the heart of Tamaki Makaurau, from Point Chevalier Beach to Point England Reserve, a distance of 30km. It is a free event for walkers and ploggers alike, and takes place on the first day of daylight savings.

Those wanting to raise money are encouraged to help the charity that established the Steptember Challenge; the Cerebral Palsy Society . To donate, please go direct to the charity and acknowledge ‘Walk On Aotearoa’ under the heading “Gift on behalf of”

You do not have to walk the full 30km and you do not have to pick up any litter (if plogging is not your thing). You can also start and end anywhere along the route. All we ask is that you share your experience via your social media accounts, and the WoA Facebook page (see below).

The inaugural NZIS Point2Point30 (#P2P30) took place on Sunday 29th September, 2019. Twelve started. Two walked the whole 30km, arriving at Point England Reserve around 4.15pm. For photos and videos of the 2019 event, please visit the WOA Facebook page.

The walk begins at 10am at Coyle Park, Point Chevalier. It ends in Point England Reserve on the banks of the Tamaki River. Much of the first km is spent on the sand of Point Chevalier Beach. From there, the route passes through the inner city suburbs of Westmere and Herne Bay. It heads under the Auckland Harbour Bridge (Point Erin), through Westhaven Marina, Silo Park and the Viaduct Basin. It covers the full length of Tamaki Drive, past Hobson Point, around Bastion Point and up to the scenic lookout located at Achilles Point, St Helliers. The final hour is spent deep inside the three nature reserves that hug the edges of the Tamaki River (Roberta, Tahuna Torea and WaioTaiki).
