Treasure from afar, the grand limestone pillars in the Waimakariri basin led early European travellers to name the area Castle Hill. Climbers, families, students, scientists and travellers have always been drawn to this spectacular place, to explore its natural, cultural, historic and recreation values.
From November 2018 until April 2019, join one of our rangers for a 90-minute morning walk to learn about the geological origins of these natural limestone sculptures and their cultural significance to Ngāi Tahu.
