Christchurch sightseeing - Akaroa harbour from the tops near Hickory Bay Road/Summit Road intersection

Banks Peninsula New Zealand is formed by two great volcanoes and is comprised of two narrow deep harbours in the remnants of the craters and steep, uplifted larva rock hills. Now mostly in pasture but with remnants of the once thick and tall forest that clad these ocean-edge and wind-blown hills.
