Most of Banks Peninsula is rural farm land or nature reserves. Rural & Farmstay properties around Akaroa and the Bays offer a real taste of Kiwi farming culture from traditional beef and cattle to the more exotic alpaca farm and secluded rural retreats. Share wholesome home cooked meals with your hosts, take guided tours of their properties or get away from it all into the dark sky nights and sounds of the bush and the ocean. Wake up to birdsong and stunning scenery seemingly a million miles from the city but in reality just over an hour away.
