Where you'll be

Start the day with a hot drink at a local cafe before heading to Taylors Mistake Beach where the walk commences. Visit another quaint beach only accessible by foot for lunch, and walk back in time as you see small abodes hardly altered since they were build 100 years ago. Banks Peninsula is rich with history and the views are incredible. Admire the crater rim of an ancient volcano with stunning harbour views before return to Christchurch.
