The best way to explore the place is with us - on foot.<br /> <br /> We&#39;re offering a special deal to TRENZ delegates this week: TRENZ delegates can do the Vogel Street Walk for just $10/ pax - that&#39;s right, half price. Please make a reservation on our <a href="/pages/2/Contact-Bookings" data-object-ref="scm_page_content:2">Contact </a>page or at the Dunedin i-Site Visitor Centre (corner of George Street and the Octagon). Tickets must be purchased before the walk: your guide can accept cash payment ($NZ please), but EFTPOS or credit card payments must be made at the i-Site.<br /> <br /> The walks take 45 mins - 1 hour, starting and finishing at Vogel Street Kitchen (76&nbsp; Vogel Street). Departure is at 9am, Monday - Saturday. Coffee is not included on the tour, but you&#39;d be silly not to have one, before or after the walk, at Vogel Street Kitchen or one of the several other groovy cafes in Vogel Street.<br /> <br /> The walk focuses on the fall and rise of Vogel Street, and recent developments across our characterful warehouse precinct.1525089600http://www.citywalks.co.nz/news/32/Vogel-Street-Walk-half-price-for-TRENZ-delegateshttp://www.citywalks.co.nz313Vogel Street Walk half price for TRENZ delegateshttp://www.citywalks.co.nz/news/32/Vogel-Street-Walk-half-price-for-TRENZ-delegates Vogel Street Walk starts soonhttp://www.citywalks.co.nz/news/31/Vogel-Street-Walk-starts-soonFrom May 1st, 2018, we&#39;re introducing a new walk, called the Vogel Street Walk. A short walk, just 45 mins - 1 hour duration, it will detail the fall and rise of Vogel Street - and the general (re)development happening across Dunedin&#39;s characterful warehouse precinct. Certainly we&#39;ll place the area in historical context, but the focus will very much be on recent/ current/ future development down there.<br /> <br /> The walks will be offered daily except Sundays, and depart at 9am. We&#39;ll start and finish the walks at Vogel Street Kitchen (76 Vogel Street). Coffee is not included, but you might choose to grab one before or after the walk - at Vogel Street Kitchen or one of the several other great cafes on the street.<br /> <br /> For a limited time, the walks will cost just $20 (adults)/ $5 (children). As with our other walks, reservations should be made via our <a href="/pages/2/Contact-Bookings" data-object-ref="scm_page_content:2">Contact </a>&nbsp;page or at the Dunedin i-Site Visitor Centre. Tickets must be purchased before the walk. Your guide can accept cash, but EFTPOS or credit card payment must be made at the Dunedin Visitor Centre (corner of George Street and the Octagon).1524657600http://www.citywalks.co.nz/news/31/Vogel-Street-Walk-starts-soonhttp://www.citywalks.co.nz312Vogel Street Walk starts soonhttp://www.citywalks.co.nz/news/31/Vogel-Street-Walk-starts-soon No walks ANZAC Dayhttp://www.citywalks.co.nz/news/30/No-walks-ANZAC-Day25 April (Wednesday) is ANZAC Day, the day New Zealanders and Australians set aside to commemorate the sacrifices made during the tragic Gallipoli campaign in World War One.<br /> <br /> It&#39;s a public holiday, so there&#39;ll be no walks happening.

In fact, there&#39;ll be services at dawn, or other times, at almost every settlement across New Zealand. Visitors are welcome to attend these services. Those who attend the Dunedin service may go to Toitu Museum afterwards for a warming cup of tea.1524398400http://www.citywalks.co.nz/news/30/No-walks-ANZAC-Dayhttp://www.citywalks.co.nz307No walks ANZAC Dayhttp://www.citywalks.co.nz/news/30/No-walks-ANZAC-Day Otago Anniversary and Easter hourshttp://www.citywalks.co.nz/news/29/Otago-Anniversary-and-Easter-hoursIt has been a bumper season so far; thank you for your support.
