West Lynn and nearby streets

The nearest shopping area to the College (1 km) is West Lynn, located on the other side of the Zoo. This is a suburb of many old ("old" for NZ that is) restored wooden houses built in the first years of the 20th Century. The streets are typically lined with deciduous European trees that lose their leaves in Winter.
