Welcome to a magical place...

Located on the east coast of the South Island, the Hurunui is an incredible place to explore.

From rugged coastlines and sandy beaches to inland alpine villages and lush green forests - the natural beauty of the area is overwhelming.

Add to that, New Zealand's largest natural thermal pools' complex, pods of sperm whales and an internationally renowned wine region and this becomes a destination you cannot miss.

The Hurunui is rich in accomodation, activities and eateries.  Best of all, it is just a 45 minute drive from Christchurch so getting here is easy...leaving will not be.
