What we're about

Welcome to Walkies! Bring the dog... Wellington’s premier social networking group for dogs and the humans who love to hang out with them!

This is a relaxed, casual, friendly (and very cool!) group for anyone with or without a dog, who loves any dog, and would like to get out and about with the pooches and just do stuff.

What sort of stuff? Well, anything dog-related really. We do beach walks, garden walks, bush trail walks, hill walks, picnics, play sessions and doggy-friendly cafes and pubs!

If there is something you and your dog want to do, feel free to schedule a Meetup anytime and anywhere! This is your space to do just that and have others join you.

Sign up as a member and join us! :-)

Botanic Gardens Walk

Botanic Garden at the top of the cable car, at the lookout

Join us 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, we may choose a completely different route on the day :-) We'll 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'll 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. We 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 (Ph. [masked]
