Kaikoura Travel Planning
Facts about kaikoura with location information
Kaikoura is located half-way between Christchurch and Picton. The township is situated between two mountain ranges extending out to sea. The beautiful road leading into Kaikoura twists itself around the coast and tunnels through the mountain ranges, while the TranzCoastal train ride offers travellers with magnificent views and a relaxing ride. The stunning combination of rugged coastline and grand mountains reveals yet another of the South Island’s magnificent natural wonders - the whales and dolphins. The name Kaikoura literally means food - kai, and crayfish - koura.
