  • In the Southern Alps to Christchurch over was left along the road, the giamgoeseogi gathered on the hillside terrain. Castle look like, and on a Hill look like a sheep. Limestone formed the hearth of this unusual terrain two. Referred to as the Castle Hill, in English and Māori referred to as Kura Tawhiti. The entrance to the ranch to raise a cow, combined with great views of the breathtaking Rocky views behind.

You can enjoy the wonderful natural scenery without an entrance fee.
