Timaru is about halfway between Christchurch and Dunedin. That means lots of people consider this South Island town a good place to stop for lunch and petrol…and not much else. We try not to judge, but those people are wrong. Once you take your own holiday to Timaru, you’ll agree. Beachfront, stunning architecture and a piazza worthy of at least a few tweets are all a part of the landscape. Of course, cheap hotels in Timaru are in no short supply. At lastminute.co.nz, we don’t see why you should pay an arm and a leg to have a place to lay your head. Ready? Let’s go!
You can start your Timaru holiday at lots of local sites, but we recommend the coast. Turn up at Caroline Bay Beach for a swim, or reenact your favourite Baywatch scene on the sand. Like we said, we would never judge. If it’s your inner art critic that you want to feed, stop off at Aigantighe Art Gallery. Of course, there is plenty of public art on display in the form of Edwardian and Victorian architecture. Don’t forget to stop at the botanic gardens to sniff the roses or lounge beneath a shady tree. Leisure looks good on you. Once the day is done, hotels in Timaru make it easy to relax and recharge.
Kicking off your Timaru holiday is pretty easy thanks to the Richard Pearse Airport (TIU), which is just 13 km from the center of town and has regular flights to and from Wellington. Churchill International Airport (CHC) is also 160 km away, and has flights from loads of cities. After a car or bus ride to your Timaru accommodation, you’re ready to start living on what we like to call “holiday time” (it’s a little bit slower and involves more wine). Once you’re in Timaru, you can get around via taxi or metro bus.
Why wait? The sooner you buy one of our Timaru holiday packages, the quicker you can stretch out on the beach!
