Travelling By Car / Campervan

With its comparatively low traffic density and spectacular countryside, South Canterbury is an ideal destination for those who like being on the road. If you want to be self-sufficient, a rental car or campervan is a great way to see this beautiful region.
Road conditions are good and in the South Island, uncongested. A few gravel (shingle) roads exist in rural areas. New Zealanders drive on the left hand side of the road. To get an idea of average drive times, see the table below.
