Just 20 minutes north of Christchurch, New Zealand is the beautiful Waimakariri district, where you will experience the tranquillity of a country lifestyle where peaceful seclusion and iconic rural townships encompass the very essence of what makes this district so special.
Travel along Inland Scenic Route 72 on your journey and stop along the way in Oxford, Cust or Rangiora for a wander through the country stores and enjoy a long leisurely lunch at a cafe. The beaches of Pegasus Bay are easily accessible and are safe for a paddle or swim, with uninterrupted views out across to the northern Waipara Hills and Banks Peninsula. The historic river town, Kaiapoi, has delightful walks along its river banks and there are many pretty parks for picnicking with family and friends.
Discover the mountains, rivers and beaches, experience the lifestyle and recreational
activities, meet inspiring artists and crafts people, taste the local
flavours at cafes and restaurants, wander through country gardens and
