Hurunui District

Located as close as a quick 30-minute drive from Christchurch the Hurunui district offers diverse landscape, a rich country lifestyle and award-winning attractions such as the Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools & Spa.

The Hurunui’s small towns offer a window into the rich culture of New Zealand’s rural lifestyle.

Boasting an abundance of beaches, forests, parks and rivers, including more than 274 hectares of recreation reserves the Hurunui is the perfect playground. The main beaches are at Leithfield, Amberley, Motunau and Gore Bay and there are recreational lakes at Lake Sumner, Lake Taylor and Lake Tennyson.

From walks to fishing, picnics to surfing – there truly is something to suit every taste and budget.

The easy and scenic drive around the entire region is 370 kilometres with the towns and villages being linked by the Alpine Pacific Triangle (APT) Touring Route.

The touring route is well signposted and can be combined with other destinations as part of a complete South Island self drive itinerary.

42 Years on…

Leithfield Beach Holiday Park is a very peaceful place to holiday with lovely clean facilities , friendly owners and beautifully set out with many extensive gardens, around the park. If you are lucky you will see a family of quails, plenty of bird life, a rabbit or two and of course a few dogs and their owners going for a walk.
There is a paddling pool for the little ones, and swings and seesaws near the tennis court also for ones use. Many good walks are around the area also in particular the beach walk to the Leithfield village, or walk up to the cafe for a coffee and a bottle of wine, maybe? The market on Saturdays is worth a visit and the many unusual shops full of treasures in Amberley.
But you could also be like me and relax in the sun with a good book. A most enjoyable destination, for the past 42 years.

Your camp was lovely and peaceful!

“Just to let you know we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your camp for 7 nights. Your camp was lovely and peaceful and the facility’s were always clean, the showers always lovely and hot. Really lovely to see that you allowed dogs in the camp. We don’t have a dog unfortunately ,but really nice to see other peoples dogs being included in their holiday. All the dogs were very well behaved and a lovely treat to have them around in the camp. Also we really enjoyed the new years eve entertainment. We were really impressed with the band you had playing on New Years day, They were wonderful and a great selection of songs. I will highly recommend your camp to all my friends. Thanks so much for a lovely holiday.” January 2014
