Inside Paerata

  • Walking Tracks 
    Take a leisurely stroll around Paerata reserve. This is a great short track for dog walkers or those that enjoy a meander in nature.

Paerata is filled with stunning New Zealand shrubbery and walkways that you can use to keep fit or go for a one-off expedition with the whole family.   

  • Cycleways 
    As an outer-city oasis, Paerata is the ideal area to embark on a family bike adventure. Paerata’s cycleways span 5 kilometres around the suburb, giving cyclists a safe space to ride around the town. As an outer suburb, this is also located close to many off-road biking experiences, as well as excellent route options for keen road cyclists.
