Town & Country - Canterbury Sheep Farm Experience

Explore the highlights of Canterbury on a scenic and relaxing half-day city and countryside tour. Drive around Lyttelton Harbour, an extinct volcano, to idyllic Governors Bay. Then, cross Gebbies Pass to the Manderley Farm, located near Little River. You will receive a warm greeting from Ross and Mary Millar, owners of Manderley Farm. Ross will entertain you with a sheep dog demonstration that shows the important role dogs play in the operation of a successful sheep farm. Drive along the shores of Lake Ellsmere, and through the small township of Tai Tapu en route to Christchurch and see some of the areas affected by the 2010 & 2011 earthquakes. Many of the historic stone buildings were destroyed. The region now rebuilds and next to these heritage buildings a new city is taking shape. Return to Lyttelton via the Lyttelton Tunnel.
