Travelling via State Highway 7 to Waikari is one of the most scenic road trips in New Zealand.
Waikari offers panoramic views of the Puketeraki and Kaikoura ranges and is the stopping point for the Weka Pass Railway.
Hawarden is home to the well-known Flaxmere Gardens and is gateway to the pristine Hurunui Lakes, set in secluded wilderness. The nearby Hurunui River is popular for recreation activities like fishing and kayaking.
