Banks Peninsular Drives. We suggest a day trip by car, make up your own itinerary perhaps over several days as you will not cover all the places below in one day.
Take Evans Pass out of Sumner passing through Lyttelton, Rapaki, Governors Bay to Teddington.
Great views of the plains and the city are obtained by taking the summit road where it joins at Gebbies pass. Returning along the Western Summit Road to Evans Pass and Sumner
Note the Sign of the Bellbird, Sign of the Kiwi Sugarloaf Transmitter, The Gondola on the return journey.
If you do not want to take the summit road from Gebbies pass you can head down Gebbies Valley toward Lake Ellesmere and return to the city on the flat, via Motukarara, Tai Tapu and Halswell.
Birdlings flat is heaven on earth for stone collectors. Watch for wave action as the surf crashes in here.
Follow the shores of Lyttelton harbour at the Wheat Sheaf Hotel Teddington and on to Diamond harbour. Take the road to Purau and on to Port levy and on to Pigeon Bay an unsealed road.
Orton Bradley Park is on your right, it has a number of attractions including access to one of the tracks to Mt Herbet. Be warned this is the steep one :-). Another access is on the Purau to Port Levy Road. ( suitable for the less fit)
You could take the Western Valley Road out of Port Levy to Little River (not recommended in wet weather, as it is unsealed)
Camp Bay is on from Purau, while the road is narrow, it is a very quaint little visited beach.
From Pigeon bay travel up to the Summit Road then drop down to Little Akaloa where there is a delightful little church on the road that you take out to Okains Bay on Chorlton Road.
The Okains Bay museum is a Must Visit an excellent collection of Maori and early European items
Okains Bay has a safe sandy beach, and sea caves at the Easturn end.
The less adventurous can take the sealed road back up to the Summit Road, while the others will take Big Hill Road near the beach, Camerons Track and Lavericks ridge Road to Le Bons Bay.
Don’t be put off by the rough first section as later views are definitely worth the trip. Le Bons has a safe Sandy Beach and a Quaint Cricket ground.
From Le Bons Bay it is back up to the circuit of the Summit Road and drop down to Hickory Bay, Goughs Bay and maybe Long Bay (Otanerito) which is the last night on the World Famous Banks Peninsular Track. These roads are steep, shingle and often one way.
Ellengowan and Otepatotu Reserves are well worth a visit, Otepatotu being on the summit road between Okains Bay and Lebons Bay. Return to Akaroa Via the Okains Bay Road or the Long Bay road. Otepatotu contains a good origional stand of native bush.
You will proceed to Akaroa on the Long Bay Road
From Akaroa you can take the Stony Bay Road or from Akaroa you can also take Lighthouse Road which leads on to Flea Bay road, Both stops on the BP track. The sealed part is very steep above Akaroa.
All the Eastern Bays have their own character and are well worth a visit.
A stop at Onawe peninsular with its history is worth the diversion. Earthworks remain of the Pa site, please respect this historic site. There are spectacular Volcanic Rock formations on the path to Onawe.
Return to Christchurch via Duvauchelle, Barry’s Bay (stop at the cheese factory and watch the process), The Hilltop, Little River, Motukarara, Tai Tapu and Halswell.
The loop from Wainui to Little River is an often-overlooked trip. It is worth driving down the Peraki road with the bay’s whaling history, although the beach is not accessible.
Treat Bossu road as a dead end, crossing the Lake Forsyth outlet should not be attempted.
On the Peninsular watch the roads as they are narrow, and there are few barriers, there are many layovers for you to stop and enjoy the view. Campervans are not recommended on the steep shingle roads. Check road conditions in winter as Ice and Snow can close roads
