Kaikoura Earthquake   Our hearts go out to our fellow motelliers who are experiencing difficulties in the Kaikoura, NZ region. We are here to support them through this difficult time.

Many visitors to NZ are concerned about other travel destinations.  Tourism NZ has issued the following info.

  • New Zealand remains a safe a place to visit
  • While this event has had a significant impact on communities in the Kaikoura area, the rest of NZ is still open for business.
  • The main area affected is Kaikoura, a small community approximately 2 ½ hours drive north of Christchurch in the South Island. Kaikoura is currently inaccessible by road.
  • For Christchurch itself, the North Island and the rest of New Zealand, it is largely ‘business as usual’.
  • International gateway cities of Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Queenstown are all open and welcoming visitors.
  • Regional airports are also operating meaning visitors can continue to fly between destinations
  • The North Island of New Zealand is unaffected so anyone wishing to travel around the North Island can do so.
  • Visitors arriving into Christchurch can travel south to Dunedin, Central Otago, Southland and the Queenstown Lakes area without any change. Alternatively visitors may wish to travel across from Christchurch to the West Coast and down to the Queenstown Lakes region and Southland via Fiordland. Both routes are unaffected.
  • For visitors wishing to travel north from Christchurch alternative routes are available to Nelson and Picton although they will take longer than the more direct State Highway 1 route.
