We will be accessing the residential red zone via public transport. This is a guided walking tour of the Avonside portion of the red zone, a large tract of vacated land along a significant urban river corridor, exploring the earthquake impacts and opportunities now offered in social, cultural,environmental, and economic terms.

The terrain is relatively flat but varies in ease of access (not wheelchair friendly), a reasonable level of fitness is required. Please wear robust waterproof footwear and dress for the weather.
