The space
Diamond Harbour is a beautiful coastal township. It is blessed with stunning views to the Lyttelton Harbour, Port hills and Godley Heads. Theres a cafe down the street by the rugby grounds open from morning til late & cater for breakfast, lunch or dinner. There is also a small but well stocked grocery store, On the Spot (141 Marine Drive) which has a great variety of basic goods. In addition, community has a hairdresser and library as well as numerous sports clubs. Shunyata Retreat and Day Spa offers a variety of relaxing procedures for body and soul.
Banks Peninsula offers a variety of beautiful beaches and bays to explore for a leisurely afternoon. Purau beach (just 5 min drive), Camp bay (15 min drive), Port Levy (30 min drive) or Akaroa (1 h 15min drive) offer a great option for a day out in the beautiful nature with magical scenery.
The vibrant community of Lyttelton is just a ferry ride away on the other side of the harbour. For a small community they offer an extraordinary variety of cafes and restaurants, boutique shops and art scene. Every Saturday morning they hold a well-established farmers market on the main street (London St – 5 minutes from ferry stop) with a great selection of local fruit&veg, cheese, bread, meat products, arts & crafts etc. Lyttelton has a great bus connection to the central Christchurch city as well.
Mt Herbert track goes past the property. The track takes about 4-5 hours return to the summit (919m ). There are also various walking tracks along the coast from the wharf to Purau beach or from Orton Bradley park. Orton Bradley park is great for a game of golf, an afternoon picnic or a wonder in the nature. Bridal path which is easily accessible from Lyttelton runs up from both sides of the Port Hills to the Gondola café and is a lovely walk with great views to the peninsula and Christchurch city and provides a good insight into the early settler’s days.
