Access from Exmouth Road end near No. 74, Arahia St, St Peters St and at two points off The Warehouse Way.
To take on the full walk make a start at the bottom end of Exmouth Road through Heath Reserve, where, to your left the shingle path begins, separating the mangrove filled salt marsh crater from the mingled native and exotic plants growing along the rim. A boardwalk takes over further along, leading to the viewing platform and seating at the cul-de-sac end of St Peters Street.
This wide grassy pathway will take you the rest of the way until the dull roar of motorway traffic signifies the merging of Tuff Crater with the modern world and you can either retrace your steps or climb the bank past the new office buildings and on to Akoranga Drive.
