Hawarden

The townships of Amuri-Hurunui epitomise small New Zealand rural towns. They are great places to relax and enjoy the local scenery and attractions.  The natural outdoors paradise at the southern area of the ward features some of New Zealand’s most spectacular mountain ranges, hillside, lakes and the headwaters of the Hurunui River, as well as offering several accommodation options for visitors.
