Brooklyn Wind Turbine route

A two hour walk or 7.8km ride (one way).

Explore regenerating bush in Polhill Reserve and take in the best views of the city.

This route is popular with mountain bikers, runners – and a healthy spillover of native birds from the nearby Zealandia sanctuary. 

Where to start the walk

From the top of Aro Street follow the blue markers with marked wind turbine symbol along Transient, Sawmill, Fenceline and Windmill trails to get to the Brooklyn Wind Turbine.

For public transport options, check the Metlink website.


Dogs must be on leads outside dog exercise areas. Please remember to clean up after your dog and dispose of the waste appropriately.
