Visiting Christchurch or a local who hasn't been over the hill to Lyttelton for a while ,its well worth the drive through the tunnel The Evans Pass Road over the hill is still closed to vehicular traffic.
Lyttelton took a real hammering in the February 2011 earthquake and aftershocks. The central business area lost many buildings meaning many businesses closed .
But gradually one by one businesses are re-establishing themselves in a variety of ways ,cafes catering for all tastes and budgets have opened .Theres an Irish Bar ,the Tin Shed art gallery and at weekends the town is abuzz with markets ,in the main street and in the local school grounds .
Lyttelton has a vibe of its own and there are obviously many people working hard behind the scenes to make Lyttelton a must visit location for tourists and travellers alike .Lyttelton is going to be much more than a Port with lots of boats ,go over and see for yourself .Easily accessable by car or bicycle or catch the red bus .Lyttelton is only twenty minutes from central Christchurch

Stopped here on the way to Christchurch. Great little port, nice views of thousands of logs being shipped off as well as a little town on the hill. Good place to have a rest stop.

Nice views from the Summit Road. Great cafes, restaurants and pubs at Lyttelton and Governors Bay. Take a ferry to Diamond Harbour and walk around this quiet little village. A friendly local might offer to give you a lift up the steep hill from the wharf.
