Rakaia

Canterbury - Rakaia, New Zealand

50 kms south of Christchurch in the Canterbury region, after crossing the longest bridge in the southern hemisphere, you’ll be welcomed by a striking salmon landmark heralding some of the best salmon fishing in New Zealand in one of the world's best examples of a braided river. Fishing season is October to April and the annual Rakaia Fishing Competition attracts anglers from all over the world.

Stop and look around. West off SH1 is the rest of the town. Take a wander around and you’ll be amazed at what there is. Yes Rakaia is much bigger than the drive down SH1 indicates. more

Stretch your legs and take a walk along the Rakaia River Walkway, following the banks of the river. Feeling parched? Then pop over to Salmon and sample some local salmon and quench your thirst.

If you’ve got the time, head west and have a look at Barrhill – Where early land owner John Cathcart Wason tried to create a typical British village. It’s a fascinating place.

Several gardens are open to the public. The domain on the western edge of the town and the reserve by the Salmon Statue provide attractive, landscaped picnic areas, playgrounds and toilet facilities.

Take a moment to send a Canterbury related E-Postcard to your friends.
