Welcome to a Region Like No Other...

Located on the east of New Zealand's South Island, the Hurunui is home to many popular locations. From rugged coastlines and sandy beaches to inland alpine villages and lush green forests - the natural beauty of the area is spectacular.

The most popular destination is New Zealand’s alpine spa village, Hanmer Springs, a relaxing and tranquil spot with all that you expect from a kiwi holiday... from stunning scenery to adrenalin filled activities (including bungy jumping!). The village is also home to the country's largest natural thermal pools complex, which is an award-winning and exceptionally popular attraction.

Add to that, the internationally renowned wine region Waipara Valley, and the Hurunui becomes a destination you cannot miss.

Best of all, the area is rich in accommodation, activities and eateries and it all starts just a 45 minute drive from Christchurch.
