Inland Kaikoura route past Mt Lyford

Post by KiwiBirkin » Tue Apr 17, 2012 11:21 am

I drove this route to Kaikoura last week with 2 other Sevens and it was fantastic, Easter weekend we used it going and coming back and on Easter Monday we encounterd 5 cars while State Hwy 1 was chocka. From Kaiapoi its 183km to Kaikoura so 15kms longer then State Hwy 1 but its much more fun in a Seven and the sceanery is fantastic the road is in great condition with a few damp spots where the road didnt get any sun, but I would watch it winter though as it has lots of damp spots that will be icey.

Just did the inland road to Kaikoura (not in the phoenix)....road is a bit rough and down to 1 lane in many places. Not a 7 road at the moment.
A great alternative is Christchurch to Waiau, then through to Cheviot, back on SH1. 50 km through from Waiau to Cheviot is an awesome blast..
