Explore the highlights of Canterbury during this scenic and relaxing half-day tour of the city and countryside.
Depart the pier in Lyttelton for the drive around Lyttelton Harbor. The harbor is tucked into the blown-out crater of an extinct volcano. You will pass through idyllic Governors Bay and cross Gebbies Pass to Manderley Farm, located near Little River.
Upon arrival, Ross and Mary Millar, owners of Manderley Farm, enthusiastically greet you and welcome you to their home. Ross will entertain you with a sheep dog demonstration that shows the important role dogs play in the operation of a successful sheep farm. Then, you're invited to join Ross and Mary for morning tea.
A drive along the shores of Lake Ellesmere and through the small township of Tai Tapu brings you back to Christchurch. In the city, you will see some of the areas affected by the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes. You will be able to see how Christchurch is preserving some of its iconic heritage buildings and hear about the exciting vision to rebuild and restore the inner city.
Return to Lyttelton via the Lyttelton Tunnel through the Port Hills.
