Where you’ll be

Little River, Canterbury, New Zealand

Little River is a pretty cool village with 2 cafes, an art gallery and a craft shop. There is also a petrol station, a shop, library and post office. The river meanders through the town and its nice to go walking around. There are lots of trees. People are very friendly here and the pace is slow so it is somewhere you can really slow down and relax. We are not far from the Hilltop tavern a great music venue. Little River is a great base from which to explore the beautiful walks and activities on the Banks Peninsula and is 30 minutes from Akaroa a scenic seaside town with a variety of shops, restaurants, cafes. It offers swimming and sightseeing with the Dolphins aswell as other wildlife activities.
