Selwyn’s fertile plains are bounded by two great rivers, the Rakaia and the Waimakariri, the majestic Southern Alps and the Pacific Ocean.
This picturesque district is situated right at Christchurch’s door; take the time and step out into its clean fresh air, gaze at its stunning natural scenery and walk further afield to visit the many artisan producers, restaurants, cafes, wineries and quality accommodation that this pretty little area offers.
From the award-winning cheeses to fresh local produce and a range of boutique sumptuous wines the Selwyn Food and Wine Trail offers many a visitor a look at the region’s rural treasures. Here we profile but a small sample of the little gems to be found along this trail.
