3. Enjoy the flowers
Stop and smell the roses! As you walk down Tinakori Road, keep an eye out for charming hanging baskets in the village. Then, continue your trip to the Botanic Garden ki Paekākā where you can wander through and see some amazing blooms. Or, if you want to take home a plant or a bouquet, head to Flowers Rediscovered Florist.
4. Treat yourself at spa/hairdresser
Need a bit of you time? Why not head to the village for a little pampering. Visit So You hairdressing or check out Groom Barbers on your way through, or book in at Beautique Skin and Body Therapy for a spa treatment.
5. Ride or walk around the area
There’s plenty of beautiful walks to check out, including the City to Sea Walkway through the Botanic Gardens via Bolton Street cemetery.
It’s easy to get there under your own steam, as Tinakori village is just a short walk or ride from Lambton Quay and The Terrace. With the new separated uphill bike lane up from Bowen Street to the gardens, you can easily make the trip by bike before you explore the village. There are also regular buses if it’s more your style and making it easy to get back if you find yourself laden with goods by the end of your day!
Watch out each Friday for a fun list of five great activities to do, places to explore, or things to discover in our awesome city.
