New season underway - 2nd Oct 2017

New season underway The sun is out, Dunedin is looking great, people are excited.. the 2017/18 walk season is underway!

What has changed? Well, our regular departures remain the same, as does the price of our walks. It's Dunedin that is changing - and mostly for the good. In particular, the sensitive redevelopment of our old buildings and public spaces continues apace.

Get the lowdown with us, on a guided walk!

Others are welcome along on these walks, but please note the above conditions. 

Welcome to Lions fans - 12th Jun 2017

Welcome to Lions fans Welcome to Dunedin!

We think you'll feel at home here. Dunedin is a great wee city: close to nature, with fine buildings, interesting history, great beer - and strong rugby pedigree. To find out more, join us on a guided walk, at 10.30am tomorrow (Tues) or Wednesday.

As for the match - I think rugby will be the winner.


Winter schedule - 28th Apr 2017

Winter schedule From May through September, we are offering one regular departure: the Old Town Walk, which departs from the Dunedin iSite Visitor Centre at 10.30am, daily except Sundays.

Dunedin is just as pretty during the winter, there's plenty going on, and we'll be in and out of buildings - so you shouldn't freeze!

I do bring a few umbrellas, and some hats and gloves, along on the walk, but you should dress warmly/ bring a coat.

Other departures may be possible, by prior arrangement: Contact City Walks (email), or text or phone us 027 356 9132 (or NZ freephone 0800 925 571).

Easter hours - 13th Apr 2017

Easter hours It's always difficult to guess what is open and operating during Easter weekend, and what is not.

City Walks will not operate Friday, 14th April, nor on Sunday, 16th April.

Regular departures will be offered Saturday, 15th April, and on Monday, 17th April.

There may be some rain over the weekend, but with the autumn colours it is very pretty in Dunedin just now and a great time to see the sights.

Have a safe and happy Easter!
