The Bay of Islands Walking Weekend
The Whalers Walk - Walk 16
A walk and talk led by the incredibly interesting Lindsay Alexander around Russell. Lindsay will captivate you and take you back in time – you can see the ships in the bay, hear the shouts of the men and almost smell the bustling streets. Included is a stop at Christ Church to learn about some of the characters buried there and a visit to Russell’s museum which houses a refurbished whaling boat. Lindsay has been researching the Bay of Islands’ whaling history for six years and has published books on the subject.
