Amberley & LeithfieldRSS

LeithfieldAmberleyAmberley is becoming the modern day boom town. Its population is exploding as people move north from Christchurch and Kaiapoi. They are discovering that this rural town offers a lot – from beaches and walkways to an excellent golf course and high quality cafes and shopping – and you will too.

Tree-lined State Highway One is the centre of the town. You’ll find all the necessities along this road as well as some quaint shops and award winning cafes.

Beer lovers may like to stop at the Brew Moon Brewery and get a fix before they head to north to Waipara's wine country. Brew Moon is rustic and welcoming with a café and microbrewery where you can taste the beer while watching others being made.

Families will enjoy both Castle Park to the south of Amberley and Chamberlain Park in the town. Castle Park is set in 55 acres of forest and features a petting zoo, paint ball games, laser tag and obstacle course – among other things. Chamberlain Park is tranquil and a lovely spot for a picnic with its own bird aviary, rose garden, cob cottage and playground.

Walkways are abundant around here. You can walk for miles on Amberley and Leithfield Beaches and enjoy views stretching from Christchurch to the Kaikoura ranges on a clear day. The Kowai Walking track (2-3 hours) can be accessed from the Leithfield Beach car park. You’ll stroll down the Kowai River to the coastal lagoon and beach spit – an awesome opportunity for bird watchers.

Mount Grey (Maukatere) is a great place to get some fresh air. It has two picnic areas each with tables and toilets and a variety of walks – some with 360° panoramic views.
