Visit Cheviot

Cheviot is known to most as being a great place to stop on your way to or from Kaikoura, being about half way between Kaikoura and Christchurch. There are some fabulous places to eat, drink, get supplies, shop and fill up your car.  There is a lot more to Cheviot than you may have realised, it is well worth taking the time to visit for longer to discover all that the region has to offer.

There are some lovely walking tracks and many great places to cycle, suitable for all levels. You can go wine tasting and a visit to a hazelnut orchard is something different and interesting. 

Cheviot has traditionally relied on tourists and passing traffic for many of our businesses, and with the State Highway One closed above Kaikoura since the November 2016 earthquake, it does mean things are a bit quiet! This does mean that it is even better to cycle, the keen cyclists have been enjoying a trip from Waipara to Cheviot and back. Our lovely cafes, takeaways, shops and Trust Hotel are open and Gore Bay is always a magnificent spot to spend some time.

This website has plenty of information on what is available, and what events are on, and you can also follow our active 
Facebook page to get more ideas and day to day information.

We are looking forward to seeing you soon!
