the Gateway to the Skifields

a rural area, down to earth people, the gateway to the skifields of Mount Hutt. playground for Christchurch Cityslickers, around 95km or 1 1/2hour drive through the greenery. Mount Hutt is arguably the best Ski area in the South Island...
Queenstown the more posh, full of tourist and quite expensive.
and there is more to the region.fishing at the Rakaia, Hotair Balloning, Skydiving, Shotover jets and for the more sedate....walking the Rakaia walkways, picnic in the fresh air or golfing at the Terrace Downs, one of NZ best Golfcourses...not so cheap I must add. US$55.- per round. but it is an int. Championship 72 hole Course

    It must be nice to live in a country that has such varied scenery only a short driving distance away!
