Walk Dunedin with Julie Woods - Greater Dunedin

By Julie Woods

My Activity Tracking


I’m getting moving to support Blind Low Vision NZ!

On International White Cane Day 2022, my sighted guide Jo Stodart and I completed our goal of walking every street in Dunedin. Finishing off with Every St!

Now we've said "why not" to walking Greater Dunedin, one street at a time and we'd love your help.

By making a donation to Blind Low Vision NZ you would be providing practical and emotional support services and ultimately empowering New Zealanders who are blind, deafblind, or low vision to live the life they choose.

Thanks in advance for your support!

Yesterday morning while out and about walking Greater Dunedin we just happened to find this seat in Port Chalmers.
I have been amazed at how big Port Chalmers is. Not a wonder we needed a sit down!

No goal would be creditable without photographic evidence, and, with us all the way, not only today but in the past is this man, Ron Esplin!

What other husband would wear hot pink and get out of bed early on a Saturday morning but this very special man!

Jo and I love what you do and are grateful for your talent Ron.

And if you are wondering who took the photo of the photographer, it was his blind wife and her sighted guide together!

And we're off!

Saturday 5th November 2022 Jo and I began our goal of walking Greater Dunedin - one street at a time.
We began this adventure with a walk around the streets of Port Chalmers, in this case, Laing Street. Greater Dunedin goes as far north as Waikouaiti, as south as Taieri Mouth, as west as Middlemarch and as east as the Pacific Ocean. It was a beautiful Dunedin day to be walking the streets and we are looking forward to returning to Port Chalmers to complete the streets in this special suburb of Greater Dunedin!
