Port Hills

Explore the Port Hills on foot, by bike or driving. From bush-clad gullies to rocky outcrops with magnificent views, these seven locations offer great diversity.

Some tracks on the Port Hills are still closed following the Canterbury earthquakes in 2011: Heathcote Quarry Track and Whitewash Head Track. The Flowers Track is open and Taylors Track from 121 Taylors Mistake Road to Taylors Mistake Beach.

Check the track status for shared-use and dedicated bike tracks.
