The three of us went from Te Atatu Peninsula through Henderson and a fair happening by The Falls, up through Corban Estate Art Centre (viewing exhibition on the way), and through the back to Border Rd. Then we turned right UP the horrendous hill that leads toward Ranui/Swanson. Two of us walked it, and John was waiting at the top.
This is the railway line crossed just below the Swanson station.
Naturally we enjoyed a delish lunch at a cafe in the shopping centre before coming back via Ranui and Universal Drive.
