Start in the city of Christchurch, a vibrant urban centre with startling street art and a thriving foodie scene. Travel south to Oamaru, the largest town of the Waitaki District. Oamaru boasts the country’s oldest public gardens, renowned Victorian architecture and two penguin colonies.

In historic Clyde, in the Central Otago District, you can hire a mountain bike to explore the surrounding hills or taste some of the premium wine that the region is known for.

This self drive journey also takes in the resort town of Wanaka in the spectacular Southern alps as well as a stay on the shores of Lake Pukaki. Immerse yourself in the beauty of the South Island and its diverse scenery.
