Go back to 1939. Built at the beginning of WW2, Godley Head coastal defence battery sits above sheer 120 metre-high cliffs. And big cliffs mean one thing – big views! On a good day you can see all the way to Kaikoura and beyond! Look out for little blue penguins, dolphins or even whales in the bay.
In the heart of Christchurch is a wild forest, home to over 400 mighty kahikatea trees with their impressive buttress roots. There’s also the oldest remaining building in Canterbury, a large grassy spot for picnics and if you’ve got sharp eyes you might spot geckos. Too much!
