Time: 1pm-3pm
Venue: I-SITE Visitor Information Centre, Puke Ariki
Event Type: Workshops, Talks, Conferences

An experienced local guide takes you through the central city area relating events, developments and anecdotes from the early European settlers’ arrival in New Plymouth in 1841, through to the time that a viable community was established some 40 or 50 years later. A fascinating way to learn about the city’s history for visitors and locals alike!
There are two walk routes to choose from - the Taranaki Cathedral/Marsland Hill walk and the Devonport/Central City walk - both are around 2km long and take about 2 hours to complete at a gentle strolling pace. There are moderate inclines in both walks.
$25 per person, which includes an illustrated souvenir booklet (the booklet can be purchased seperately for $10). Under 16s are free. Advance bookings only.
