Rural Tourism

There are great opportunities for rural-based tourism to develop in the Project area, particularly in association with infrastructure and accommodation development now underway in Kaikōura.

Our tourism work is focusing on the community of people likely to be developing, or considering, agri-tourism based business ventures across the project area in the next few years. Many of these will be younger farmers who want to develop a family enterprise in the context of an existing farming business.
