Tuesday lunchtime walks 2022 start at Plimmer statue (the man with his dog) at the base of Plimmer Steps on Lambton Quay every Tuesday at 12.30pm from February to the end of November.
The walks are graded to indicate whether the walk is along the flat or whether climbing steps is involved. Details of the walks are here.
The walks are designed to last less than 1 hour so that those who work in the city can get back to work on time.
