Travel along State Highway 7 and you'll soon come across the small settlement of Hurunui. Steeped in character and charm, the pristine beauty of Hurunui is defined by its rivers, lush plains, rugged foothills and history.
The Hurunui hotel and village provided weary sheep drovers travelling to Christchurch a reprieve to rest and refresh for almost 150 years, and remains an iconic landmark in North Canterbury today.
While the Balmoral Recreation Reserve Camping Ground across the Hurunui River, provides abundant space and seclusion for relaxed recreation and fishing.
A short distance away is Culverden, set in the middle of the wide Amuri Basin surrounded by a stunning mountain backdrop. This delightful country townshop offers a variety of bed and breakfasts, nature walks and farm-stays, making is an ideal setting for travellers seeking a rural New Zealand experience. The town's Rutherford Reserve has a popular walk and playground.
