Welcome to Kaikōura!

We’re a small district with just over 3,500 residents in just over 2,000 square kilometres. Although we’re small, our takiwā (district) offers plenty - on land, out on the water or up in our skies.

The booklet linked below contains information about local services, organisations and activities that we hope will help you get settled in, and get to know our district.

Whether you are here for a short time or have made the move to Kaikōura permanently, we look forward to welcoming you to one of the most beautiful places on earth.
