Local Activities

Stay at Leithfield Beach Holiday Park and explore the Hurunui District and the Waipara Valley. There is so much to do!

Leithfield Beach's Fairy Land

Take a walk in the forest (end of Kings Road) to explore Leithfield Beach’s Fairy Land: these creative painted rocks scenes will appeal to anyone. A great and fun activity to do with children and a nice walk anyway!

Kowai River Walk

We have a beautiful Kowai track, leading from Leithfield down the Kowai River to the coastal lagoon and beach spit with plenty of bird life. A track for everyone to use especially to walk their dogs or take a cruisey bike ride down.

Amberley Farmers Market

Enjoy a leisurely social shop for fresh produce, a treat, or a hot lunch at Amberley Farmers Market. Every Saturday morning, 9 till 12.30 pm.

Weka Pass Railway

This is a historic rural railway using both vintage steam and diesel-electric locomotives on 12.8 km of scenic line through the unique limestone beauty of the Weka Pass out of Waipara where superior weather patterns provide crystal clear air and high sunshine hours. The Weka Pass Railway is a totally voluntary organisation, whose members are dedicated to the preservation of New Zealand's rail heritage. Initially the railway runs across flat farm land and passes a large irrigation reservoir and vineyards, before climbing grades as steep as l:50 ( 2% ) as it winds through the cuttings in the Pass.

Black Estate

A family owned vineyard on the warm, sunny slopes of the Waipara Valley, where the vines grow through clay and limestone soils to produce intense wines completely expressive of this site.

Wines are hand crafted using artisan techniques and a dedication to creating exceptional Waipara Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Riesling.

The cellar door is open Thursday to Monday each week from 10am to 4pm.

St James Journeys

St James Journeys offers transportation to the heart of the St James Valley, where you can tramp, mountain bike, kayak or just enjoy the breathtaking views. From Hanmer Springs, we take the Clarence Valley Road in a Defender and drive down into the Waiau Valley.
Andrew, the driver, is very knowledgeable about the history of the place and would be delighted to share it with you. St James Journeys can cater for any kind of trip you'd like, and offer customized packages to suit your requirements.
