The Breeze Walking Festival

Spring is on the way and so is The Breeze Walking Festival, 28 September to Sunday 13 October 2019.

Now in its eighth  year, the festival offers 50 free walks with a range of easy, medium and challenging routes.  Many of the walks combine the chance to learn more about nature, culture, history and new developments around our city and region.

The opening weekend sees the return of the popular feature walk ‘Dogs Day Out’ that begins with a guided scenic walk in the red zone, free micro chipping for Christchurch registered dogs, and lots of treats for dog lovers of all ages!

Family Friendly walks include the Wookie walk, Charlesworth Wetland discovery trail, Going on a Bear Hunt, Pukeko Stomp, Gruffalo Explorer, Adventure on Te Ara Ihutai – Christchurch coastal Pathway, The Generation Game and many more.

Specific walks in the Waimakariri region include the Forest Awaken Saturday 5th October and Wookie Walk Tuesday 8 October at the Tuhaitara Coastal Park, Silverstream Reserve walk Sunday 6th October, Twlight River Bird Discovery Tuesday 8th and Thursday 10 October, and the Kaiapoi River Wellbeing  Walk on Saturday 12th October.
