The walk itself takes under an hour, and is mostly flat. One of the highlights is crossing the Bayswater Bridge (the cycle/pedestrian bridge was completed in September 2013 – officially opened 5th October 2013, made with recycled totara timber balustrades).

Little & Friday cafe has moved into the city now and has been replaced by Daily Bread. Love Little & Friday and still enjoy their awesome cakes when I’m in the city. Now I love Daily Bread too, their bakery is totally awesome. Coffee is really good.
