The <a href="/pages/5/The-Walks" data-object-ref="scm_page_content:5">Heritage Highlights Walk</a>, which is a shorter version of the Old Town Walk and includes whisky and haggis (instead of coffee), will again be offered at 4pm.<br /> <br /> Remember, the walks depart from Dunedin&#39;s i-Site Visitor Information Centre (corner of George Street and The Octagon), daily except Sundays.1476615600http://www.citywalks.co.nz/news/16/2016-2017-Season-Underwayhttp://www.citywalks.co.nz2892016/ 2017 Season Underwayhttp://www.citywalks.co.nz/news/16/2016-2017-Season-Underway Busman's holidayhttp://www.citywalks.co.nz/news/15/Busman-s-holidayWhat does a walking-tour guide do for a holiday? He goes for a walk, of course. This time we&#39;re off to do the Rakiura Track, on beautiful Stewart Island.<br /> <br /> This means that City Walks tours in Dunedin will cease until Monday, 18th July. Remember, this is the winter season, so there&#39;s only one departure a day, at 10.30am - and this needs to be booked in advance (see previous news item).<br /> <br /> Happy walking,<br /> <br /> Athol1468152000http://www.citywalks.co.nz/news/15/Busman-s-holidayhttp://www.citywalks.co.nz278Busman's holidayhttp://www.citywalks.co.nz/news/15/Busman-s-holiday
