Kaikoura

Kaikoura

Kaikoura is a small coastal, seaside town on the South Island of New Zealand. It’s known for its abundant wildlife; with crayfish and marine life and famous for whale watching and swimming with the dolphins, with a large sperm whale population. Kaikoura is situated midway between Christchurch and Picton on the east coast of the South Island and is close to the rugged mountain range running the length of New Zealand. The drive in either direction offers stunning coastal scenery for large parts of the journey. The Tranz Coastal Pacific train is an alternative way of getting to Kaikoura and is considered one of the most scenic train journeys in the world.

Few places on Earth possess the magic of Kaikōura. Many who visit leave transformed. It is a special part of New Zealand, imbued with powerful natural energy. A place where tectonic plates collide, towering peaks fall to the sea and ocean currents converge. Kaikōura is one of New Zealand's leading eco-tourism destinations offering a variety of exciting activities and experiences. Despite the recent rise in tourist numbers, the town retains much of its historical charm. Many new motels, cafes and restaurants can be found in beautifully restored old buildings. Fresh local seafood is always on the menu. The retention of the town's distinctive character has made Kaikōura extremely attractive to artists. Their work, inspired by the remarkable landscape and wildlife, can be seen all over town.
