To access Kaikoura from Cheviot, you can go through the Leader Road and then to the Inland Road. It is a very scenic route, and well worth the drive to beautiful Kaikoura. 

The geothermal hot springs and tourist destination of Hanmer Springs lies 70 minutes drive to the West, as does Mt Lyford Ski Resort, a sunny, family orientated field with four lifts, ski hire and ski school.

Cheviot is one of the many gems along the Alpine Pacific Triangle, a popular touring route north of Christchurch.

Getting here

Currently bus services are only available when State Highway One to Kaikoura is open (expected to be open again 1 June). Intercity and Naked Bus are two companies who do service Cheviot normally.
