A taste of Cheviot hospitality might be just what you need on the road between Christchurch and Kaikoura. This rural town is very welcoming.
Cheviot is the main town on the coastal route between Amberley and Kaikoura. Named for the Cheviot sheep, it’s clear that the primary local industry is wool growing. The museum depicts the history of the area, including the discovery of moa bones. Cheviot Hill Domain, with its extensive planting of English trees, is a pleasant picnic spot in all seasons. During summer months, Gore Bay on the coast is popular for surfing and both the Hurunui and Waiau Rivers reward fly fishermen with sea-run salmon and trout. If you’re not just passing through, a Cheviot farmstay can introduce you to the delights of sheep mustering, pony riding and other rural entertainments.
Functional facts: Approx. population 400, information board, limited accommodation.
