Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

A rural area with farms and life style blocks. The nearest neighbour is 250 metres away so peace and quiet is the norm. Very little light polution so a great opportunity to view the milky way. Rural roads are easy for biking and most drivers are used to people on bikes and horses. There are lots of walks and bike tracks around Timaru.

Best restaurants
Timaru has plenty of restaurants with a variety of cuisines
There must be some but I do not partake. Much prefer a good wine and some friends at home.
Favourite cafés
Several dotted around Timaru Stafford street.
Where to go shopping
Timaru or Christchurch
Your area's cultural and historical landmarks
The rock art centre is a must see. Lots of Maori rock art in the area. Aigantighe gallery for arts. Lots of old buildings in Timaru. Oamaru Steam Punk museum is a must.
Local walks
Along the board-walk, Caroline Bay Timaru
Places you love to exercise
Biking around here there and anywhere. Local rotary has a group that goes biking every Thursday morning. Some members are getting on so it is all about getting there together and enjoying the coffee.
Top day trips
Moeraki Boulders, just past Oamaru (1.5hr), have lunch or dinner at Fleurs, world famous fish restaurant. Mount cook. Lake Tekapo church of the good shepherd overlooking the lake.
