Lyttelton Crater Rim: Rapaki to Cavendish with Dr. Sam Hampton, Frontiers Abroad, Department of Geological Sciences, University of Canterbury, and Te Pātaka o Rākaihautū / Banks Peninsula Geopark.

This walk will take us along the section of closed Summit Road between Rapaki Dyke and Mt Cavendish. The walk will discuss the formation of the Lyttelton Volcanic Complex and the surrounding stages of volcanism of Banks Peninsula. We will provide detailed explanations of road cut exposures, allowing participants to recognise and interpret volcanic deposits and processes. The views from the road provide opportunities to discuss the formation of the Canterbury Plains, the coastline, and coastal processes. As the road has been heavily impacted by rockfall we will also examine the evidence of these left in the landscape today.

Note this is a wheelchair accessible walk.
