 City Walk: From Ridge to Sea

Saturday 7 November 1pm – 3.30pm

With Sue Gardiner and Dr Matthew Bradbury

Landscape Architect and Urban Design expert Matthew Bradbury joins art tour guide Sue Gardiner for a walking tour to explore the urban dynamics of Auckland ‘From Ridge to Sea’. Starting at St Kevins Arcade on the Karangahape Road ridge, the walking tour tracks changes to the city throughout its history as city designers had their dreams for Auckland either dashed or realised. Taking in public art and cultural spaces along the way, we explore how cultural and civic needs have shaped Auckland over time. This is an easy 2.5 hour walking tour. Finish at the corner of Queen Street and Shortland Street.

Hi Glen, it was a great walk/talk. Both Matthew and Sue were excellent and I learnt such a lot more about my ‘hood.
