Via Bus Line 28 Lyttelton Dep.: 8.40 am, 12.10pm Centeral Station B 46-50 Lichtfield St. $2.50 ea way Via Car Christchurch Gondola 10 Bridle Path Road, Heathcote Valley, Christchurch 8022 We meet at the base of the Gondola to start the walk. Take a ride and enjoy stunning views from the top of the Gondola station. I am going to take you on a journey and go back in time where the story of Christchurch began. When the first settlers arrived in 1850 their lives and the lives of the local Maori changed forever. Take the same walk over the Bridle Path as the settlers did. Listen to Maori myths and their traditions like the haka and tabu. Learn about how New Zealand's mountains were formed and why there are birds which cannot fly. I will take you for 2.5 hour walk from the Gondola station down to historic Lyttelton. As the Bridle Path winds down steeply to Lyttelton, a moderate level of fitness is recommended.
