    We enjoyed our trip on the gondola. It stopped three times on the way up which was a bit disconcerting. Otherwise the view from the top is good.

    Stunning from start to finish.
    This was the third walk I did this month after the Heaphy and Rakiura tracks. All Very different and offering different landscapes and challenges. This was absolutely delightful and charming.
    The accomodation was unique, quirky, clean and comfortable with everything you need and options for all types of traveller.
    The walk itself offered stunning views, beautiful bush, waterfalls, swimming holes, long comfortable stretches and a few challenges and uphill climbs, all the wildlife and farmlife to satisfy every interest.
    Can not recommend this walk highly enough. Perfect for a two or three day hiking option in a stunning part of the country free of crowds and busy walkways.

    Had a lovely conversation with Richard, he talked us through the history of of and around the building. The old cathedral, the use of the land prior to the construction of this one, the architectural designs their importance. Very knowledgeable host.

    Biked the track. Well maintained, it was bit of a grind as it was very windy but we made it to the top and back down in one piece.

    What a fantastic walk!. A warning, it is not flat and there are some decent, but not too steep hills to climb. But you don't have to do it all to be impressed with the views. Very, very highly recommended. The drive there involves tight roads and extreme hairpins!.

    We walked around the area looking at restaurants. The area was obviously suffering from reduced patronage due to Covid but is a pleasant visit

    This is a very moving area to visit. So many lives were lost and every one is remembered on this simple wall remembers them all. This understated white wall is such an inspirational memorial to those taken from us by the 2011 earthquake.

    Godley Head is a great spot to explore and enjoy the scenic view of the beach and the mountains. Beautiful scenery.

    Well worth the drive and visit. The people who work there an d those in character of the era were knowledgeable and interactive. Was great to see ride the steam locomotive.
    Parking was the biggest issue, but enjoyed the walk to the entry.

    Well worth visiting if you are in Christchurch

    Still partway through a major renovation and strengthening following the 2010/2011 quakes so some areas are still off limits. Yet to regain it's vibrant atmosphere but making good strides. The great hall is always worth a visit.
