Town Belt Traverse

Dunedin Amenities Society —

On Sunday 28 April take a self-guided walk with interpretation of the Town Belt's history and ecological importance. The walk starts at the historic Southern Cemetery and finishes at Woodhaugh Gardens.

Check in from 10-11.30 am at the Southern Cemetery and complete the walk by 1.30pm.

The Town Belt Traverse route is reasonably pram friendly, and an event for people of all ages. You are welcome to bring your dog but they must be kept on a lead.

Participants will receive a map and instructions of the route. Park your car around the Oval area (not in the cemetery car park) and walk through the cemetery from the South Road entrance, following the road until you get to a flat area that is the cemetery car park.

You can start the traverse any time from 10am to 11.30 am but must reach Woodhaugh Garden by 1.30pm to hand in your ticket to have a chance of a prize.

The traverse is a free family friendly self-guided walk with interpretation points making your walk fun and giving you a greatr appreciation of the Town Belt.  Marshals will be available at each stopping point and road crossing areas.

Toilets will be available for those on the Traverse at Jubilee Park, Moana Pool, Olveston Historic Home, and Woodhaugh Gardens.

At the end of the traverse at Woodhaugh Gardens, will be DOC's  'Making a Change' Expo with activities, and information from a number of ecology groups working in Wild Dunedin.


At the starting point parking can found around the Oval.  

The Heritage Bus is running from Woodhaugh back to the start for a gold coin donation.  

What to bring:

The Town Belt Traverse is your opportunity to explore one of New Zealand’s great reserve sites. Good luck and we look forward to seeing you at the Traverse.
