Geraldine

Canterbury - Geraldine, New Zealand

The pretty country town of Geraldine lies on the scenic inland route (SH72) and is located 130 km south of Christchurch International Airport. The town makes an excellent first or last night stopover for international arrivals seeking to explore the South Island as it is the gateway to the Starlight Highway leading to the UNESCO International Dark Skies Reserve at Tekapo and onwards to Mount Cook and the Southern Lakes. Geraldine accommodation offers a selection of choices such as motels, holiday parks and country lodges. more

Artists and crafts people have long called Geraldine home, resulting in a cosmopolitan arty vibe in the town centre, which is peppered with funky eateries and outstanding coffee spots.

Nestled among the cafes can be found art galleries and boutique retailers offering everything from designer fashions to New Zealand wool products, handmade gifts and locally produced cheeses, chocolates and preserves.

Geraldine's beautiful gardens and gracious exotic trees are a delightful setting for the many festivals held across the seasons which celebrate the town’s, diversity, lovely gardens and thriving arts scene. The town boasts two excellent museums - the first historical and then the Vintage Car and Machinery Museum, which has a fascinating collection of vintage vehicles dating back to 1905.

To see some majestic specimens of ancient podocarp forest, visit the Talbot Forest Scenic Reserve, just a 5 minute walk from the town centre or stroll along the colourful rhododendron walk alongside the Waihi River, an oasis in the centre of town. Peel Forest Park, 19km north of Geraldine, is great for nature and adventure lovers, with walking tracks, whitewater rafting, waterfalls, horse trekking, native birdlife and native trees. The rivers and streams around Geraldine have graced it with many beauty spots and there are superb views of the mountains from the rolling hill country of the Geraldine Downs.

Outdoor enthusiasts are spoilt for choice with walking and cycling trails and geo caching locations around the district. The town hosts a variety of multi-sport events for all abilities each autumn, including the fast growing cross country map reading sport known as rogaining. The surrounding area comprises all types of farming, with sheep and cattle on the high country and dairy and fruit farming on the lower levels down to the coast. In winter, Geraldine is an ideal base for skiers heading to the Mount Dobson, Tekapo and Fox Peak ski areas.
