The girls here are very helpful and know their stuff. They can book activities for you also, plus look up weather conditions to help you plan any trips. The shop sells good value t-shirts and baseball caps too.

Located right in the town centre on the main street and with a large car park if you need any help or advice about Kaikoura or in fact any other tourist location this should make this your first stop.

The Center was very helpful. They knew exactly where the Lavender farm was and provided great map and clear directions on how to find the farm. All of the visitor centers throughout New Zealand are well staffed with knowledgeable people who truly want to help visitors
