Come to the Hurunui - great place, great lifestyle

Hurunui District Council provides local roading, water, drainage, sewerage, planning, library, social housing, building control, waste management and many other services to a community of about 11,500 people in the Hurunui district.

The Hurunui District

The Hurunui district begins at Leithfield just 35 minutes north of Christchurch, and extends to the Conway River south of the Kaikoura Peninsula. It is bordered on the west by the snow capped peaks of the Southern Alps and on the east by the Pacific Ocean.

The Hurunui district offers lifestyle, adventure, and a chance to experience the rich history and culture of rural New Zealand. Seasons vary dramatically with searing summers through to winter snowfalls. Autumn temperatures are mild with stunning seasonal colours, while exotic flowers, green pastures and lambs dominate the spring landscape.

The townships of Amberley, Cheviot, Culverden and Hanmer Springs are the major urban areas. The district also has a number of villages and beach settlements.
