Quarry Cabin


Quarry Cabin is in North Canterbury - an hour's drive from Christchurch, 20 minutes from Amberley, and 50 minutes from Hanmer Springs

The off-grid, self-contained 30m2 one-room cabin is nestled into an old quarry. From its perch on the hilltop you can gaze out over the breathtaking Waikari Valley Basin and Hurunui Mountains.

Make yourself cosy in the cabin's all-in-one kitchen, bedroom, and lounge area, where you can relax and unwind. The indoor bathroom is easily accessible via a sliding door. Step outside onto the deck and indulge in a relaxing soak in the beautiful bath. The BBQ and seating area offers the perfect breakfast and pre-dinner drink spot to witness the breathtaking sunrise and sunset.

The magnificent views are constantly changing with the seasons. Despite feeling far removed from civilisation, the cabin is conveniently located near the township and other stunning spots in the North Canterbury region.


Quarry Cabin is self-catering. Just bring your own food and drink, and cook meals using the single-ring gas cooker, wood burner stove range oven and BBQ provided in your kitchen. You'll find all the cutlery, crockery, pots and pans that you'll need.

You're only minutes from Waikari township with several cafes and pubs to choose from. The Waikari Star & Garter pub is open Wednesday to Sunday from noon to 8:30pm. If you want coffee, try Waikari Kitchen. Takeaways are also available.

The nearest store for stocking up on food and supplies is the Waikari gas station. A four-square is located in Hawarden, 9 minutes away. A larger supermarket can be found in Amberley, a 20-minute drive away.
