i started just off a main street in Invercargill and walked about 4klm along crossing over several roads, it was drizzling rain when I walked but it didn't put me off, It would be lovely on a nice sunny day though.

A nice garden walk near the Masonic Temple and Basilica. Not sure if you can fish but I saw a few fish in the stream. What to do get some Burger King or Bluff Oysters and enjoy it in the gardens.
