Destination: Little River
The historic town of Little River is 45 minutes from Christchurch, on the Akaroa Highway. Just 30 minutes from Akaroa, and a similar drive to the many small bays and beaches of the Peninsula, Little River is the ideal base for your Banks Peninsula experience. Hike, bike the Rail Trail, swim with dolphins, gather gemstones at Birdlings Flat or cruise the Akaroa Harbour. Little River’s a fantastic place to start!
