About
Description
Waiau Motor Camp - Escape to our little piece of country. We are North Canterbury's oldest township with a rich history. Visit the form Jail, historic woolshed and other listed local landmarks. We offer More powered and unpowered sites, or stay in one of our cabins, used to accommodate Nasella Tussanite workers back in the 1960's. We are an ideal centre point for regional attractions, being only 35 minutes to Hanmer Springs, 60 minutes to Kaikoura and 20 minutes to Mt Lyford Skifield. Go fishing in the Waiau River or try your luck hunting. Or just come & enjoy the peace and quiet of our small piece of paradise. Less
