Timaru is a port city in the southern Canterbury region of New Zealand, located 157 kilometres southwest of Christchurch and about 196 kilometres northeast of Dunedin on the eastern Pacific coast of the South Island. Venture out of the city with trips to Oamaru (The New Zealand Whisky Company, Oamaru Public Gardens, & more), Lake Tekapo (The Church of the Good Shepherd, Lake Tekapo, & more) and Waimate (EnkleDooVery Korna & Silo Art). Spend a day of country life on the 31st (Tue) at SkyScape. There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Caroline Bay Beach, relax in the rural setting at Famlan Farm Park, take in the exciting artwork at York Street Gallery of Fine Art, and look and learn at Geraldine Observatory.
