Activities/Attractions: Amberley is a town of 1100 people and growing, and a place where you can explore the cafes, crafts, camp grounds or the peaceful coastline, before striking out up-country.

It's home to the Nor' Wester Cafe - one of New Zealand's best cafes. Arts and crafts abound here and the area is renowned for its impressive country gardens. The Amberley Beach golf course is a must with sweeping views of the coastline and a favourite for keen fishermen.

Amberley is just a 40min drive from Christchurch International Airport and a 45min drive from Hanmer Springs.  Seven minutes north of Amberley is the Waipara Valley, one of the fastest growing wine producing regions in New Zealand.

The Waipara Wine Trail starts north of Amberley, offering a wide selection of tastings and excellent lunches. The beach is close by and good for walking. There is also an attractive Golf Course at the beach.
