A lovely area for walking and picnicking or working out. Lovely views out to the bay with fitness equipment and play areas for kids.

“Timaru - stayed too long”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

We stayed in Timaru for 10 days and that was way too long. We did day trips out from Timaru but as it was on the east coast it was really not in a great position for this. The farms around are very neat and tidy and there are lots of dairy cattle. I would suggest stay only a couple of days. There are some good pubs to have lunch at. One near the Tourist info, one overlooking Carolyn Bay and the Irish Pub in town is good value too.

A nice town but not for too long.

“WONDERFUL PLACE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

A must visit. What a beautiful place and so well maintained.
Carnival area which seems frequently used. Great family areas and place to work out.

Caroline Bay is amazing. The beach is great for the kids, no harsh dumping waves. Beautiful views of the mountains :)

“More of a park”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

We expected a beach to unwind but in reality we found an entertainment park which by chance has a waterfront
