experience canterbury.

Welcome to Our District.
Nestled in the heart of the South Island, Mid Canterbury is one of the most exciting destinations all year round.

Stretching from the breathtaking Southern Alps to the Pacific Ocean, the district offers experiences like no other. Set against the snow-capped adventure playground of Mt Hutt and surrounded by pristine turquoise rivers and lakes, it is a region that has something for everyone.

Just a short one hour drive from Christchurch International Airport brings you to the heart of the district with Lake Tekapo, Mount Cook and the Steampunk Capital of New Zealand, Oamaru, all on your doorstep.

Packed with activities to choose from like snowboarding, skiing, scenic flights, jet boating, sky diving, water rafting, offroad adventures, hot air ballooning, craft beer tours, whiskey tasting, visit the Steampunk Museum, grab a round of golf or just indulge in arts and culture and shopping galore.

If you want to experience the very best that New Zealand has to offer Mid Canterbury is the perfect destination for work and play.

Are you ready for the summer of a lifetime?
