It's the New Zealand you've always wanted to live in...with great coffee...
Lyttelton is a place of rugged natural beauty, community-minded locals, entrepreneurs and creative types, funky eateries and a very popular weekly market.
A community that's small enough to care, big enough to be vibrant...
It's a real community with people who know each other and go the extra mile to muck-in and get things done. At the same time, it's large enough to provide city amenities and many lifestyle attractions. And of course, Christchurch is just a short drive through the tunnel.
The great outdoors right on your door step...
Walk in the hills, explore the Banks Peninsula, swim in the sheltered bays, enjoy sailing and water sports.
Great local cafes and eateries
You'll never go hungry in Lyttelton with a range of fantastic places to eat from cafes, bars, restaurants and fish and chip shops.
We've got some awesome festivals
Every year, thousands of people line the Lyttelton streets for our awesome Festival of Lights. You have to see the town to believe how much effort goes into this event. We top it all off with some pretty stunning fireworks and a variety of amazing food stalls.
