Walter arrived in New Zealand around 1868. He came because his father William had stood guarantor for one of his sisters, and had lost money, so Walter went to the colony to earn a living.

In 1875 he was living in Tuan Street, Colombo Street south, Christchurch.[1]

In 1876 his brother James died in Melbourne, and Walter received "the diamond ring with some baby linen".[2]

By 1880 he was a draper[3] and in 1922 he was listed in the Christchurch telephone directory as "Drapers: W.E. Munday and Sons, 369 Colombo Street, Sydenham A7067".

He is buried in the Linwood Cemetery in Christchurch.
