Abstract Considerable societal changes across many countries have altered how children interact with their local environment, yet child-specific destination data have not been translated into a child-related destination accessibility index to further understand how neighbourhood locations support or hinder child mobility. Using data sourced from 238 9-11 year-old children living in Auckland, New Zealand, we aimed to: identify common destinations children travelled to; and develop a spatially derived objective index to quantify access to destinations that may support child mobility in the neighbourhood. Our findings show that children accessed a wide range of destinations during their daily activities, and the neighbourhoods that supported children's mobility tended to be located in more established areas, rather than newer greenfield developments.
