"The Jewel in the Town of Canterbury"

Akaroa Tourism

Akaroa, a town in South Island, New Zealand is one of the most historic and bi-cultural places to visit. This town is located on the banks of the peninsula and is Southeast of Christchurch. The main employer industry in Akaroa is tourism, with tourists from across the world working here seasonally, giving this town an exotic vibe. 

Located around 84 kilometres from Christchurch and 25 kilometres from little river, Akaroa is one of the oldest cities in Canterbury, tracing its birth in 1840. The French culture here can be evidently seen in the street names in this town. Visitors often come here during the dry season which enables a comfortable experience around this seaside settlement and offers them a range of activities to do here.

Akaroa is most famous for its olive oil, herbs, cheese and wine, reflecting on the French flair. With the increasing number of foreigners exploring the peninsula Banks, Akaroa is leading its path to becoming the marine life hub in New Zealand.
