Tunnel Beach

This place is awesome. You can walk to the tunnel or stay here at the top. It’s only few minutes away from Dunedin, New Zealand


Short walks compilation, Christchurch New Zealand

We are lucky to be surrounded by lots of reserves, parks and beaches in our city. These are few of our favourite places for a short walk. It gets dark around 10pm during summer so after work, we usually go for a walk on one of these places.

Taylor’s Mistake New Brighton Beach

Spencer Beach

Styx mill reserve

Hagley Park

Preston’s Park Subdivision

Sign of the kiwi


Victoria Park

Rapaki Bay

Bottle Lake Forest

Riccarton Bush

Bush inside the city, it’s probably 3mins walk to the mall. I used to walk here every lunch when my office was beside the mall. It’s impressive on how they preserve this place

Sumner beach

Bishopdale Park

We usually call this place as elephant park because of the elephant slides
