KAIKOURA - A YEAR-ROUND DESTINATION<br />

<strong>Kaikoura</strong> has a rich history<br />

and culture which can still be<br />

experienced and enjoyed today.<br />

Maori heritage is reflected in the<br />

name <strong>Kaikoura</strong>. Tama ki Te Rangi<br />

arrived in the area many hundreds<br />

of years ago and was tired and<br />

hungry. He found an abundance<br />

of crayfish and named the area<br />

“Te Ahi <strong>Kaikoura</strong> a Tama Ki Te<br />

Rangi” - the fire that cooked the<br />

crayfish of Tama ki Te Rangi.<br />

European history can be traced<br />

back to 1770 when Captain<br />

Cook first mapped the <strong>Kaikoura</strong><br />

peninsula. The first shore whaling<br />

station was established here in<br />

1843. Visit the museum and<br />

historic buildings or take a<br />

Maori cultural experience.<br />

<strong>Kaikoura</strong>’s coastal waters are<br />

home to an amazing array of<br />

marine mammals and birdlife<br />

making <strong>Kaikoura</strong> the perfect<br />

destination for marine experiences<br />

all year round. Perhaps the most<br />

famous residents are the sperm<br />

whales who share this part<br />

of the Pacific Ocean with<br />

dusky dolphins, fur seals and<br />

albatross - to name but a few.<br />

Migrating species such as the<br />

rare Hector’s dolphins, humpback<br />

whales and orca visit throughout<br />

the year. View marine life from a<br />

boat, plane or helicopter or get<br />

even closer by swimming with<br />

seals or dolphins in their ocean<br />

playground. Experience some<br />

excellent diving sites and surf<br />

breaks or explore the coast<br />

by kayak.<br />

WWW.KAIKOURA.CO.NZ


With the tallest mountains on the<br />

east coast as a backdrop, <strong>Kaikoura</strong><br />

is an inspiring location offering<br />

fantastic land-based activities<br />

ranging from the energetic to<br />

the relaxing.<br />

Go quad biking, river rafting or<br />

take a ride on the mountain<br />

luge. Explore the countryside on<br />

horseback or visit the farm parks.<br />

Hire a bicycle and explore at your<br />

own pace. Visit the winery, stroll<br />

through the lavender farm or treat<br />

yourself at the day spa.<br />

If you enjoy walking and hiking,<br />

you will find plenty of options<br />

ranging from short strolls to<br />

multi-day hikes. There are also<br />

several guided walk options<br />

including multi-day hikes<br />

with accommodation. For real<br />

exhilaration in the skies above<br />

<strong>Kaikoura</strong>, try skydiving or pilot<br />

your own plane!<br />

Whether you are eating out or<br />

dining in, you will be spoiled for<br />

choice. Savour the delights of<br />

<strong>Kaikoura</strong>’s ocean larder including<br />

the local speciality of crayfish.<br />

The range of camping grounds,<br />

bed & breakfasts, motels and<br />

apartments, as well as backpackers<br />

and luxury accommodation,<br />

provides plenty of variety and<br />

KAIKOURA - A UNIQUE ENVIRONMENT<br />

Such a special place deserves<br />

special care and protection to<br />

ensure it can be enjoyed<br />

by residents and visitors now<br />

and in the future. For several<br />

years, <strong>Kaikoura</strong> District Council<br />

and the <strong>Kaikoura</strong> community<br />

have been involved with the<br />

‘Green Globe’ programme -<br />

an environmental management<br />

scheme for tourism destinations<br />

and businesses. In 2004, <strong>Kaikoura</strong><br />

District became the first local<br />

authority to achieve Community<br />

Environmental Certification under<br />

this programme.<br />

What does<br />

Green Globe<br />

involve?<br />

A series of<br />

indicators are<br />

used to measure<br />

environmental impacts in <strong>Kaikoura</strong><br />

in areas such as air quality,<br />

greenhouse gas production, water<br />

consumption and energy use.<br />

Careful monitoring, planning and<br />

the introduction of innovative<br />

strategies are used to reduce<br />

impacts such as greenhouse<br />

gas production and to improve<br />

quality such as air and water.<br />

An independent audit annually<br />

assesses these measures to ensure<br />

that progress is being made.<br />

What else does Council do<br />

to protect the environment?<br />

Here are just a couple<br />

of examples:<br />

Zero Waste programme -<br />

aiming for zero waste in the<br />

landfill by 2015.<br />

Significant Natural Areas<br />

Programme - private landowners<br />

in the District are encouraged to<br />

rejuvenate and protect areas rich<br />

in native plants and wildlife.<br />

WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP?<br />

Everyone in <strong>Kaikoura</strong> is asked to<br />

recycle. Think about packaging<br />

when purchasing items and take<br />

the time to find out how much<br />

can be recycled here - all plastics,<br />

cans, paper, food, baby diapers<br />

and so much more. Use our<br />

public recycling stations or visit<br />

our Recycling Centre if you are<br />

not sure. Refer to the map (p8)<br />

for recycling locations.<br />

Remember to reduce, reuse and<br />

recycle. Switch off lights when<br />

not needed, conserve water, hire<br />

a bike or walk rather than use<br />

the car. Support our campaign to<br />

reduce the use of plastics and buy<br />

one of our ‘Fantastic! No plastic’<br />

eco bags.<br />

As you travel around the<br />

township, the countryside, the<br />

coastline and other more remote<br />

parts of the District, please do not<br />

leave litter or waste of any kind.<br />

Enjoy the natural environment but<br />

please do not spoil it.<br />

To discover the recommended<br />

places for camping, read the<br />

listings in this guide, contact<br />

our i-SITE Visitor Centre or the<br />

Department of Conservation<br />

office. An excellent resource for<br />

campers is www.camping.org.nz<br />

With regard to camping, we<br />

encourage all campers to use<br />

designated campgrounds.<br />
