What To Do In Christchurch - Visit Diamond Harbour

If you're looking ideas on what to do in Christchurch, why not visit Diamond Harbour and take in the beautiful sights and sounds of the area. Legend has it that Diamond Harbour was so named because one of the early settlers observed the sun reflecting on the water and thought it looked like a thousand shining diamonds. Whatever the reason, Diamond Harbour remains one of the sunniest and unspoilt destinations on Banks Peninsula and is great for a day trip for people of all ages.

How about an energetic walk to Mt Herbert or a more relaxing stroll around the cliff tops and beaches. There is great swimming at both Purau Bay and Diamond Harbour and you can rent mountain bikes in Diamond Harbour

The pretty town of Diamond Harbour also has a couple of small cafĂ©'s for tea, coffee or delcious home-made food. The Chalfont Cafe now has a wonderful licenced decked bar out the back over looking the cricket field.
