Mt Aubrey sits alongside Mt Manaia at 216m above sea level with views of the Whangarei harbour and Pacific Coastline.
Starting on a well formed gravel track, you steeply wind up through the native bush. The track then plateaus as you make your way along the ridgeline, winding around the impressive rock formations - there are plenty of spots to stop and enjoy the view.
As you descend, take care looking out for tree roots and rocks.
The track ends at Little Munro Bay, where you make your way up Bayview Road to the Mt Manaia Carpark, or you can extend this walk to do the Reotahi Coastal Walkway.
