A REMARKABLE

COMMUNITY

Banks Peninsula and surrounds are areas of great beauty

and history – full of optimism and vitality, combined with

a very strong sense of community.

Our people continue to make the Banks Peninsula area

truly special.

It’s full of dynamic residents who invest their time,

energy and money into building a better place not only for

themselves and their families but also the many visitors

who come to marvel at the natural beauty this area has

to offer.

Our relationship with this region is growing as we

continue to deliver stories about the people and places

weekly through The Bay Harbour News – giving residents a voice and also

informing them about what is happening in their community.

The 2019 Banks Peninsula Residents’ Guide highlights the very best of the

district and also delivers information on businesses and services available to

those who live, work and visit here.

In a district that is thriving, we are happy to provide you with an insight, into

what makes this area the very special place we all know it to be.

A KAROA AND SURROUNDS

You could be forgiven if you feel like

you’re walking back in time as you stroll

along the main street of Akaroa. Here

you will find pastel-coloured architecture

from ages past, all finished with

decorative gables resembling fine lace

work and highly-fragrant gardens which

all combine to create a fairy tale-like

setting.

There is much to do here, whether you

are seeking a restful getaway, a bit of

retail therapy or even a chance to see

ocean nature at its best, there is indeed

something for everyone.

The area has much early history with the

area influenced through Maori, French

and English settlers. Originally a fishing

port, the area is now a tourist haven with

both local, national and international

tourists now visiting this village.

Cruise boats frequent in the summer

which create a business, however if you

are seeking a more restful and laid back

experience and want to avoid the influx,

just check the cruise boat schedule

which is available online.

There are many activities to see and

do in Akaroa throughout the year. The

Le Race cycle finishes in Akaroa on

23 March. There will be an influx to

see competitors who have raced from

Christchurch to Akaroa in one day.

The Akaroa FrenchFest is another

highlight on the events calendar. For a

weekend in October you can bask in

all things French and enjoy the sights,

sounds and tastes of the culture.

Things to do

• The Giant’s House

• A nature cruise to spot the dolphins

and seals

• Fish and chips by the seaside

• A visit to the Akaroa Museum

• Market day

• Stroll along the waterfront

with an icecream

• FrenchFest

• Kayaking in the harbour

• Check out a movie at the Akaroa

Cine Café

• Visit the Akaroa Art Gallery

MT VERNON LODGE

With amazing views and great facilities which make

Mt Vernon Lodge the only choice for your stay in Akaroa.

Mt Vernon Lodge, specialists in all your wedding, conference

and accommodation requirements.

A KAROA AND SURROUNDS

While visiting Akaroa there are also

many places to find not so far away.

Barrys Bay

If you love to see artisan food makers

at work, then take a quick drive to the

Barry’s Bay Cheese factory. Here you

can see how this handmade cheese

is created as well as taste the varieties

available for sale.

Little Akaloa

A little haven perfect for peace and

serenity not only does this have a

wonderful beach to visit but also the

walk to St Luke’s Anglican Church

is well worth the effort. Here you will

find an English exterior combined with

decorative Maori carvings on the interior

– definitely a treasure where you can

attend a church service on the first

Sunday of the month.

Okains Bay

A safe family beach, camping ground

and the Okains Bay Maori & Colonial

Museum are all terrific reasons to

stay at this little piece of paradise.

You can also take a short walk on the

Okains Bay Millenium Walk which

features native bush. If you get the

opportunity, the Okains Bay Waitangi

Day commemoration at the museum is

a wonderful day out for the family with

traditional Maori culture combined with

fun activities for all.

Duvauchelle

Duvauchelle is a pretty little spot with

its own boat ramp, baches available for

rent and an excellent camping ground.

A great place to gather in the summer

and make the most of the beach or

the easy access to the fishing grounds

of Banks Peninsula. The Akaroa Golf

Club is also situated at Duvauchelle on

Pawsons Valley Rd.

Little River

If approaching or leaving the Banks

Peninsula area via Little River this

township is well worth a stop. The

historic railway, renowned café with art

gallery and rail trail are all reasons to

spend a bit of time here. If you fancy

staying the night you can even spend

the night in a silo which has been

converted into accommodation or

the local campground which also has

access to the ecological haven that is the

Manaia Native Habitat.

Fresh fruit and vegetables,

fresh meat, great instore

specials, beer and wine,

fresh bread daily

Open in Winter:

8am-6.30pm (7 days)

Akaroa’s newest fish & chip shop

Situated at 7 Church Street, Murphy’s on the Corner is the Fish & Chip

shop all the locals are suggesting. They are a family owned and operated

business, offering freshly caught fish from Akaroa Harbour, premium

chips, the best seafood chowder made daily and fresh Akaroa Salmon.

They are rated as having the best fish burgers in NZ.

L YTTELTON

Lyttelton isn’t just a wonderful place to

visit it is also an exciting destination to

get to.

Whether you take New Zealand’s

second longest road tunnel through to

the sea side, drive around the stunning

meandering road taking in the vistas of

Banks Peninsula, or even catch a ferry

from Diamond Harbour, regardless of the

way you get there it is certainly a place

worthy of spending a bit of time.

Visitors here get a real sense of the

town’s resourcefulness with many

businesses having a focus on being

ecologically friendly and some with a

focus of reusing, recycling and re-loving

items others have finished with. There is

a community garden as well as the LIFT

library (life-membership $20) where

you can find more than 600 titles about

the transition movement, alternative

currencies, sustainability and community

development, economics, food, health,

as well as DVDs and magazines.

This eclectic township is full of

wonderful coffee shops, delightful

markets and plenty of distinctive bars

and restaurants. Glamour Cakes in the

Lyttelton Bakery is great if you’re looking

for a mouth-watering treat, just make

sure you go early before the stock runs

out.

In mid-winter the brave rug up and

come to watch the ethereal Lyttelton

Harbour Festival of Lights. The township

and harbour become a magical space

with food karts, a spectacular parade,

buskers and markets all creating

a festive atmosphere. The brilliant

fireworks display is definitely a highlight

of this evening.

If you’re a boat spotter, Lyttelton is a

wonderful place to watch yachts, cargo,

cruise ships or fishing boats come and

go into the harbour.

Did you know

The Lyttelton road tunnel is designed

to cope with 2,400 vehicles an hour

travelleing through. In 1965, an average

of 2,805 vehicles a day used the tunnel.

In 2014 this figure was just over 11,000

vehicles a day including around 1,260

heavy commercial vehicles, underlining

the tunnel’s importance as a key freight

route.

1849 announced that Lyttelton

Port was a recognised port

S UMNER

Sumner is a delightful township with a relaxed feel, largely

due to the wonderful soothing ocean which rolls onto a wide

sandy beach.

The township is visited by many in the summer, all looking

to escape the city in search of a place to partake in their

favourite watersport, play a bit of beach cricket or just soak up

the sunshine. It is also a popular surf beach because of the

high swell which forms in certain conditions.

This thriving little piece of paradise, is home to some very

fortunate people who have the ocean on their doorstep but

also the brilliant amenities that come with it.

A lovely stroll along the boulevard at sunrise or sunset, a

fresh fruit ice-cream by the sea or a wonderful meal – dining

overlooking the waves, are just some of the ways to while away

the time.

Here you will find a movie theatre, restaurants, schools and

don’t forget to check out the Sumner Market which runs on

Sundays between November and April.

Did you know ?

Captain Thomas named the settlement for Bishop John

Bird Sumner, one of the leading members of the Canterbury

Association. The Mãori name for the area is Ohikaparuparu

("o" means place of; "hika" means rubbing, kindling,

or planting; "paruparu" means dirt, deeply laden, or a

preparation of fermented cockles).

O RTON BRADLEY PARK

Tucked just back from the shores of Banks Peninsula, is

Orton Bradley Park, a haven for all those who like to enjoy

nature and the outdoors.

This 650ha property was originally leased as farmland from

local Ngai Tahu in 1845 by Samuel Manson. The Reverend

Bradley then bought the land in 1859. Orton Bradley, the

eldest of the reverend’s nine children, took over the farm after

his father’s death in 1892.

It was Orton who invented the waterwheel at the farm which

drove the generator, providing power for the house and to run

saw bench, lathes, a drill and grindstone for blade shearers.

You can still see the system at work along with historical

buildings which have either been restored or replicated.

The farm buildings remain including a dairy, stables and

implement shed. These protect carefully restored working

farm machinery from colonial times including a rare cocksfoot

thresher.

The park was gifted to the people of New Zealand in 1943

and is run under an act of parliament and operates as a

public trust.

Here you will find more than 25km of walking tracks catering

for all ages and abilities. They range from the famous

Rhododendron walk (20 minutes) to the popular Waterfall

Gully Track (2 1/2 hours) and beyond to the DOC Packhorse

Hut or Mt Herbert. The property has a large children's

adventure playground, with flying foxes, situated next to a

small stream, and we also have a number of short mountain

bike tracks suitable for all members of the family.

It is famous for the arboretum, where visitors can view more

than 150 different trees from all around the globe and also

the rhododendron garden which is now recognised as a

collection of national significance. The property also serves as

a campsite for self-contained campers all year around and for

those tenting during the busy summer school holiday period.

There is also a café which operates from 8am to 8pm for

visitors or those just wanting to stop off for refreshments as

they tour the Banks Peninsula area.

The Park is open from 8am to 8pm, 7 days a week, 365 days

a year.

O UTDOOR PURSUITS

The landscape of Banks Peninsula is the

remnant of volcanic activity of millions of

years worn down over time by the wind,

snow, ice and rain to create the beautiful

rocky open tussock landscape we see

today.

In the wide open spaces of the Banks

Peninsula area, you can enjoy tramping,

mountain biking, walking or even 4WD

experiences in various places throughout

the hills.

Here you will find indigenous species of

plants, wildlife and wonderful views of

Canterbury and the seascape.

There is a Banks Peninsula Walking

Festival throughout the month of

November where avid walkers, trampers

and historians can learn more about the

landscape and surrounds while taking

Tsunami – how to

prepare

Your best warnings for a tsunami are:

• a long rolling-motion earthquake longer than

a minute,

• a strong earthquake where it is hard to

stand up, or

• odd ocean behaviour: loud or strange noises

coming from the sea or sudden sea level

variations.

Sirens will not necessarily be used if the

tsunami starts close to the shore. Sirens will

be activated if there is one to three hours

warning time before a tsunami will hit the

shore. Therefore you should always evacuate

to a safe area away from the shore if you

experience these warning signs.

You can find these safe areas at ccc.govt.

nz/services/civil-defence/hazards/tsunamievacuation-zones-and-routes

Emergency Mobile Alerts will be sent to most

phones for serious events which threaten life,

health or property. Most phones are capable

of receiving these alerts without any action

from the phone user however there are some

phones which are not. You can visit www.

civildefence.govt.nz to see if your phone is

able to receive these alerts.
