  • Banks Peninsula


    Formed by two massive and violent volcanic eruptions many millions of years ago, Banks Peninsula is a hidden gem just a short drive from the city of Christchurch.

    The rugged and hilly peninsula has wonderful walks in the centre and many beautiful and secluded beaches around the coast.

    The main settlement of Akaroa is a real treat and is full of character. Claimed by the British at Green Point just days before the French colonists arrived in 1840, Akaroa was once a French whaling settlement and still has a very French atmosphere with French street names, cafés, restaurants, small wineries and a number of craft shops. The sheltered natural harbour is the ancient crater of the volcano and is great for sailing and fishing.

    It is also home to a population of Hector’s dolphins, the smallest and rarest dolphin in the world, and offers you the opportunity to watch and even swim with these delightful animals
