Lyttelton is 15 minutes from Christchurch. The tiny community is settled on the rim of an ancient volcano. You look out at the centre of the volcano, now open to the ocean. This beautiful backdrop sets the scene for great freshly roosted coffee, delicious food, music, markets and a local brewery. Walks 30 minutes - 2 days Walks in the hills, beaches suitable for swimming. Go out to dinner and walk back in 5 minutes or cook at home and eat out on the deck with the sun setting. Fantastic pictures!
