Visited on Wednesday 23rd May. One of the many places to stop and have a look at the harbour whilst driving between Lyttelton and Governor's Bay.

Best to go on a Sunny day if possible. Lovely spot, ferry ride very quick but maybe a bit overpriced. Decent walk to the top where you can have a bit to eat and a bevvy. Great little spot

Just a 10 minute ferry ride from Lyttelton (and free for NZ Gold Card holders!) Diamond Harbour is a pleasant diversion from the city traffic. Limited food offerings so a picnic might be recommended. There is a pleasant coastal walk to Purau if you have...More

Well worth the drive out from Christchurch or get the ferry from Lyttleton. Purau, just a little further on offers a peaceful relaxing place to picnic and swim.

We lived at Diamond Harbour for 3 years a while back, and most days we drove the long and winding road of 220 corners to ChCh. So it was a trip down memory lane to return with our adult daughter, son in law and grandsons....More

Although there are winding roads or a boat ride across a bay to get there, it's worth taking the time. There are a few walking tracks that start there, places to eat and historic places like the Stoddart Cottage to visit.

We visitede Diamond Harbour via the ferry from Lyttleton. The pace here is a slower one than over the water in CHCH, and it is s great place to unwind and relax.
