Weekend Getaways from Farewell Spit  

The lovely coastal city of Kaikoura, famous for whale watching, is a 2-hour Intercity bus ride away. The bus station is in central Christchurch - easily walkable if you're located centrally. The bus drops you about a kilometer away from WhaleWay Station in Kaikoura where you need to report for the activity (our tour was cancelled since the whales played spoilsport and went off deep into the ocean). You could also take a scenic Kiwirail from Christchurch to Kaikoura. 6. Rotorua

About Farewell Spit

This sand spit is on the Northern end of South Island. In fact it is the most Northern point of the Island.This sand bar extends into the Golden bay. It almost looks like a small desert surrounded by water. Covered with golden sand this is the longest spit in New Zealand and runs east to west. It is a very popular place among tourists. You can camp here overnight, but warn you it gets very cold during the night.
