Welcome to the Hurunui
Thanks for choosing to live or work (and hopefully play) in the Hurunui district - you wont regret it!
Let's be honest we don't have the population of a large city like Auckland but we are mighty and often punch above our weight. From the multi award winning Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools and Spa to the internationally acclaimed North Canterbury Wine Region, from our rivers to the Pacific Ocean, from our wilderness area to our alpine villages.
The Hurunui is a treasure trove of wonderfully unique rural townships each with their own personality. But one thing they all share is down to earth country charm and friendly hospitality which is hard to find anywhere else.
