The Breeze Walking Festival 2019

Put some spring in your step and explore Christchurch from Saturday 28 September to Sunday 13 October 2019.

The Breeze Walking Festival is back for 2019 and with over 50 walks to choose from there is something for all ages and abilities.

From child-friendly strolls to energetic treks, to informative ambles through the central city, we've catered for all interests and ages. 

With a wide variety of walks in the beautiful regions of Christchurch, Waimakariri and Selwyn, it's not to be missed. The walks have been designed to appeal to those wanting to embrace nature, culture, the arts, history and new developments around our city.

The festival is a chance for all Cantabrians to explore their city and region, and above all to enjoy a social outdoor experience to celebrate the end of winter and the coming of spring.

The Breeze Walking Festival is proudly supported by Christchurch City Council.
