Visitors to Timaru and residents can now access a free app highlighting a collection of the city’s scenic, heritage and arts walking trails.

The Timaru Trails app was launched this week by Venture Timaru and is the start of a series featuring trails that are under development in the district.

“We’re excited to launch the Timaru Trails app that gives visitors and locals the opportunity to explore our district in a new way, Timaru operations manager Di Hay said.

The first trails feature Caroline Bay, the Dashing Rocks coastal walk, Timaru street art and Timaru CBD heritage.

“The beauty of the app is that you can choose to do as little or as much of any of the trails that you like, depending on the time you have available or your interest.

“Each of the trails has a series of location markers linked to points of interest along the trail and you can follow these and see exactly where you are on your phone, and where to head to the next stopping point,” she said.
