Discovered this place after a trip to the local information centre. It's just a lovely, quiet spot where one can sit, amble along the pathway or chill out with the words from the Hikus hopefully inspiring you or allowing time for contemplation.

Well worth doing this stroll. Mainly all flat and traels all the way along the river through Katikati. Lots of art and interesting things to look at along the walk. Lots of bird life.

Short, but well maintained path with haiku poetry stones along the way. There are longer, more picturesque walks in Kati Kati though.

Alot of work has gone into this pathway and is a pleasure to walk or cycle on. It is very picturesque and in the centre of Katikati township.

I've visited the Haiku pathway twice now and I'm still not sure that i've had the full experience. Either that, or I'm walking the wrong paths. There are numerous haikus etched into rocks, etc alongside the pathway for you to enjoy. Though the pathway itself...More
