“On Top Of The World.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2012

Thats how I feel when I'm up on the hills. They are a Portal to the world. From "Up There" I can view Canterbury, and love every inch.

“Stunning Views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

Recommended by the B&B host from Designer Cottage B&B. Love the view and the nature reserve. Rich in native wildlife and beautiful cafe on along the foothill. The view is so stunning, no photo can justify what we saw on the side. Hope to see you there one day.

“The only way is up!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

It is possible to walk, cycle or jog up to the Port Hills BUT it is so much easier to drive! Once near the top there is good parking and ample opportunity to view Christchurch and Banks Peninsula as well as the harbours of Governors Bay and Akaroa. On the day I travelled there the wind was extremely strong which hampered the walk a bit and certainly didn't encourage top many looks over the ravines and edges. Great photo opportunities on a clear day - highly recommended.

“Beatiful sea and city views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

Beatiful views - try the Crater rinm walkway on a nice day! Great views of the sea on one side of the walkway and city on the other.
