View the Waimakariri River and its unique braided river system, enter Arthur's Pass National Park where short walks can be taken to experience forests, rivers and mountain vistas before lunch at an historic high country hotel. Follow the old stage coach route and travel down the spectacular Otira Gorge, view Cave Stream where it burrows underground in an area of limestone cliffs, gorges and craggy outcrops. Alternatively, visit the incredible Castle Hill rocks, unique weatherworn rain smoother outcrops of limestone and regarded sacred by the Maori.
