Visit Cheviot

The road between Cheviot and Kaikoura may not be open for some time, but the road from Christchurch to Cheviot is! It is not only a beautiful scenic road, it is also very quiet at the moment as the main highway has been diverted as a result of the earthquakes earlier this month.

Cheviot is now "off the beaten track" and our community needs visitors. We have been very dependent on passing trade, so now we need you to visit the wonderful destination of Cheviot and discover (or rediscover) just what a great place it is with great people. 

Our lovely cafes, takeaways, shops and Trust Hotel are open and Gore Bay is looking magnificent. There are many things to do so please follow this page to get an idea of what is available, what events are on and make a plan to come and visit soon.

Many kind people have offered donations and help, but the best thing you could do at the moment for Cheviot people is come and spend some time and money!
