A wee peek at Dunedin
From e-scooters to where to go for dinner - we have it covered.
A fine troika of buildings, all repurposed, on Dunedin's Princes Street.
Looking north, towards Dunedin Railway Station.
Fable Hotel, Princes Street. Formerly Wain's Hotel. Facade designed by New Zealand's oldest existing architectural firm, Mason and Wales, in 1878.
Louis Salmond designed these, built in 1901. Yes, there were cable-cars here!

Creatives thrive here: the fabric sculptures are by Motoko Watanabe.
Dunedin Railway Station's fine mosaic floor.
The pulpit, First Church.
Saturdays at the Railway Station. Go before our 10.30 walk!
Saving our buildings and streetscapes.
Taste Nature, High Street. An ideal tenant for this sensitively redeveloped space.
Consultancy House, formerly The NZ Express Co. Building. Our first skyscraper. Bond Street.
Counting down to iD Fashion Week. Dunedin has a full events calendar; we'll keep you in the loop.
Vogel Street Kitchen (76 Vogel Street). The start point of our Vogel Street Walk.
Community recycling depot, Vogel Street. We talk about this on our Vogel Street and Dunedin Laneways walks.
First Church, designed by R.A.Lawson.
Raising the bar, Jetty and Vogel Streets. The ground floor is home to Heritage Coffee; we profile this space on our Vogel Street and Dunedin Laneways walks.
The maximum group size on our regular walks is 10 pax, but we can do larger groups by arrangement.Here's Athol leading his ProGuides NZ colleagues on the Vogel Street Walk. Photo by Tine Becker.
First Church, from Burlington Street.
An exciting space in the throes of renewal. The destination of our Dunedin Laneways Walk.
Out and about with a local school group. Interesting - and way more fun than sitting in a classroom.
The Jetty Street flyover, under construction. 1970s.
Dunedin's Warehouse Precinct.
Help us re-imagine Dunedin's former prison.
City Walks owner/ guide Athol Parks is also a writer. He has written and published two works: Alert Level Four, a chronicle of life during New Zealand's first Covid-19 lockdown; and Japanese Gardens, pictured above. The latter may still be available at Dunedin's Toitu Museum. Ask Athol if you'd like to purchase a book.
Three cheers for Josephine! The beautiful wee double-ended Fairlie had a significant birthday this year (2022). Learn more on our Old Town Walk, or visit Toitu Museum.
