About the neighbourhood
Hapuku is just a 10 minute drive from Kaikoura where the ocean meets the sea. Kaikoura has a deep underwater trench that is home to sperm whales, dolphins and seals all year round. Many times throughout the year there are also Humpback Whales, Orca, Blue Whales, Pilot Whales, Southern Right Whales as well as Dusky Dolphins, Hector's Dolphins and Bottle-nose Dolphins. Just north of Hapuku is the famous Ohau Seal Pool where, in winter, hundreds of baby New Zealand fur seals gather to play under a beautiful freshwater waterfall. Hapuku Beach is a wild secluded beach, perfect for long walks and for finding interesting rocks and driftwood.

How to get there
Railway: Kaikoura Train Station: 13.0 km
Driving from Picton takes around 2 hours.
Leaving Picton you drive south – travel through Blenheim following signs to Christchurch.
You will travel through Seddon, Ward, Kekerengu (The store there is a great place to stop for a coffee) and go over the Clarence River.
You will pass the iconic Nin's Bin, Mangamaunu (great surf break) and after this you will then cross the Hapuku River.
Just after the Hapuku River Bridge you take the first left onto Lover's Lane. (it can be quite hard to see the turn-off as the signpost keeps going missing!) Just follow this road all the way down until it hits Hapuku Road.
Turn right onto Hapuku Road – keep going and you will see us on the right.
If you miss the turn-off to Lover's Lane – take the 3rd left onto Factory Road, over the railway lin...
