Kekerengu Travel Guide: 10 reviews and 20 photos

The Store

Kekerengu is a very, very small place in Canterbury about 45 mins North of Kaikoura & 65 mins South of Blenheim. In fact it about the most northerly place in Canterbury before you hit Marlborough. It is named after the Moari Chief, Kekerengu, who set up the original settlement in the early 1800's

The reason to stop here is The Store which has a great range of things to eat and drink plus a wonderful coastline to photograph.

Coastline and Animalia

The coastline follows a similar pattern to that around Kaikoura but without some of the spectacular mountain views.
