Discover the diversity of Christchurch, just a 3 hour flight from the Australian eastern coast. Then take an easy 2.5-hour drive along the scenic coastline to Kaikoura for some dolphin and whale watching. Next stop, wine country. Linger in the picturesque Marlborough region, enjoy a sauvignon blanc or two, and relax in the Marlborough Sounds waterways. Explore the artisan haven of Nelson and the world-famous Abel Tasman National Park. On the way back to Christchurch unwind in the natural thermal pools and spas of Hanmer Springs.


The picturesque coastal town of Kaikoura is all about adventure on or near the sea. Watch whales, snorkel with seals or feast on a plate of crayfish.

Christchurch, Canterbury

Driving north from Christchurch you will be surrounded by the rolling hills of Canterbury’s wine region, the Waipara Valley. As the country’s fastest growing wine region there are plenty of places to stop and enjoy a long lunch. Further up the stunning coastline you’ll arrive at New Zealand's leading eco-tourism destination, Kaikoura.  Wander the spectacular Coastal walkway and see Sperm whales, dusky dolphins, fur seals and albatross play in the waters off shore and don’t forget to stop at Nin’s Bin for crayfish and mussels picked straight from the sea.
