Make the most of this summer with Cityscape’s ultimate bucket list. 1 The great outdoors Make tracks on the Crater Rim Walkway from Evans Pass to Godley Head, where jaw-slackening panoramas of the city, up the coast to the Kaikouras and over Banks Peninsula meet a great workout.

Top Dog promises that “the show will cater to young and old; as this is Shakespeare in its most viewer-friendly form!" and that the production is a delightful mix of “comedy, cunning and confusion”.The show runs at Mona Vale from Wednesday 12th February to Saturday 22nd with a 6pm start Monday to Saturday, and a 2pm matinee on Sunday.
