Here you will find over 60 of Canterbury and Kaikoura's best day walks, which will take you to the great outdoors either fossicking in the limestone country of Castle Hill, testing yourself on the arid slopes of the Torlesse Mountains, or exploring the waterfalls and mountains around Arthur's Pass village. This book, the next in our popular Day Walks of series, takes you alongside rivers, seacliff headlands, saltwater lagoons, and through the native forests of Canterbury and Kaikoura. Detailed access notes and travelling times accompany descriptions of the geography, climate, wildlife and fascinating notes on the history of Maori and European occupation of the area.
