Timaru Airport Mini Guide

Tell me About Timaru Airport
Richard Pearse Airport or Timaru Airport is in South Island, New Zealand and is 160 km south of Christchurch. The airport takes its name from a local pioneer and aviator. The airport is tiny and has a small tarmac runway and a parallel grass strip.

How Would I fly There?
There are three flights a day to/from Wellington operated by Eagle Airways for Air New Zealand and there are occasional flights to Christchurch and Oamuru.

Is it Easy to get to the Town?
You can take a taxi from the airport to the town or hire a car, that way you can really see what Timaru has to offer.

What Facilities Does the Airport Have?
This regional airport is small and has basic facilities, but everything you need for a short trip.

What can I see in Timaru?
This port and seaside town has a stunning backdrop of snow-clad mountains – its name appropriately translates from the Maori ‘place of shelter’. Caroline Bay is the place to go and swim or relax on the beach or if you want to surf, head for Patiti Point. To find out more about the town’s heritage, go to South Canterbury Museum and see fossils and Maori rock art. The Aigantighe Art Gallery has works from the 16th century to the present and a sculpture garden or if you enjoy nature see the local ferns and roses at Timaru Botanic Gardens.

Anything Else to do?
If you fancy a round of golf, head to Timaru Golf Club or Highland Golf Club. You can take a walk through the Centennial Park Reserve, it has a 3 km walk through a wooded valley. If you like your food and drink, why not go for a tour and tasting session at DB Mainland Brewery.

Out and About
Drive out to the rural village of Geraldine, it has a pretty main street with historic buildings. The village has a thriving arts community too.

Where Can I Stay?
Avenue Motor Lodge is in Timaru, it has a choice of studios and apartments with self catering facilities. It’s a 2 minute drive to cafes and restaurants and 5 minutes to Caroline Bay.

Timaru is famous for two things and with a hire car you’ll get to see them both as well as other attractions in the area. The first is the strangest named mountain in the world, the extinct volcano on which the city is built, Mount Horrible, which actually isn’t horrible!

The volcano gives the typical undulating nature of the city’s streets and provides the very different ‘bluestone’ of which many of the city’s buildings are made. The second famous thing about Timaru is its amazing roses. Seek them out at the Trevor Griffiths Garden and the Timaru Botanical Gardens.
