Botanic Gardens Walk

Join me and Lucy the Spoodle for a casual, and highly sociable, stroll through the gardens. We will start from the Cable Car lookout point and work our way down to the rose garden via walking paths and bush tracks, crossing the little creek, rounding the duck pond and through the scented garden. Having said that, Lucy does lead the way and she likes to go a different way every time, so a completely different route may occur on the day :-)

We will stop for refreshments at Picnic Cafe - who kindly have doggy water bowls on offer - and sit and relax among the roses for a bit.

We will then head back up to the Cable Car lookout point using the easy (gentle incline) bush route option. Those who want to leave the walk in the rose garden and head off in other directions are welcome to do so.

There is a Tournament Pay & Display Car Park at the Skyline Function Centre right next to the Cable Car at the end of Upland Road. Otherwise you may be able to find street parking closer to Kelburn Village, a 5 or so minute stroll to the Cable Car lookout point.

Lucy and I do this walk in all weather but, if it is particularly bad, I will send out an email by 8.30am on the morning of the walk advising of cancellation.

This will be an on-lead walk for our poochies in compliance with Botanic Garden requirements.

Looking forward to having you join us!

Tania & Lucy the Spoodle (Ph. [masked])

    Hi there, I'm planning to come along if the weather is good. I'll bring my black lab along. He will be excited to see everyone but hopefully will settle down after he has met you all. Looking forward to it!
