    Peel Forest

    by allikat Written Mar 15, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    View from Peel Forest.

    Peel Forest is about halfway between the towns of Timaru and Christchurch, via the back roads. Its a great spot for walking, picnicking and just enjoying the outdoors. Several waymarked trails through the trees, and open spaces too.

    Lake Ida

    and Lake Coleridge..high Country lakes, good for fishing, camping and for weekend hunting. information can be obtained at the Colaridge Village. Lake Ida will freeze over in harsh winters, a winter spectacle for Christchurch people, skating all day long..around 1 1/2h easy drive north-west of Christchurch..and the sunsets are....beautiful

    Devil's Punchbowl waterfall

    Devil's Punchbowl

    Nearish Arthurs Pass township, there is a very easy walk you can do to a waterfall called The Devil's Punchbowl. It is a very pleasant walk in bushland, and the waterfall at the end is a rewarding site.

    Maruia post office

    In Maruia, we saw this little shack, which was a fully operational post-office (albeit open only certain times of the day!)
