About Timaru

This busy coastal South Island port and holiday resort is a gateway to the mountains, lakes and rivers of the Central South Island. The town is known for its elegant Victorian and Edwardian buildings, made of volcanic bluestone. Timaru's focal point is beautiful Caroline Bay. This well-equipped and safe swimming beach is bordered by a 20ha reserve which has children's playgrounds, gardens, tennis courts, an aviary, a skating rink and plenty of carparking. There is now also a new Aquatic Centre adjacent to the tennis court facilities

Every Christmas/New Year the beach hosts Timaru's popular summer carnival - three weeks of fun and frivolity. The region's history can be explored at the South Canterbury Museum, or wander through the Aigantighe Gallery or Timaru's lovely Botanic Garden. Activities in the Timaru district include horseriding, mountainbiking, golf and fishing. In winter there are several skifields within reach - try heli-skiing or glacier skiing for something a bit different. The Washdyke Industrial Park, Racecourse and Levels Raceway are sutured some 12 km away on the north side of Timaru.
