On and Around Beautiful Lyttelton Harbour
Lyttelton Harbour is located right beside the city of Christchurch. It offers the visitor spectacular scenery, made even more interesting with fascinating Māori and European history.
You can experience Lyttelton Harbour by driving the short distance through the Lyttelton Road Tunnel or over the Port Hills.
Lyttelton was the port of entry for English settlers coming to the new settlement of Canterbury.
Around the Port Hills you'll find a choice of adventure sports, including mountain biking. There are many walks around the hills and beach areas, as well as safe swimming and picnic areas.
