Timaru District Council

Over 42,000 residents enjoy life in Timaru District. Moderately-priced real estate, good medical services, excellent educational facilities, an abundance of sporting and recreational facilities and a friendly community all contribute to make Timaru District a welcoming and attractive destination. Enterprising businesses keep the workforce stable.

The thriving port city of Timaru is surrounded by picturesque bustling towns, lush pasture, rolling downlands, green hills and clean rivers lie in the lee of New Zealand's magnificent Southern Alps in the west.

Within the gentle curve of the South Canterbury coastline the Timaru District covers 2,602 square kilometres of diverse landscape.   The District's north and south boundaries are naturally defined by two rivers, the Rangitata and the Pareora, both known for great fishing and swimming. A stretch of land in the northwest corner of the District sweeps through 64 kilometres of dramatic scenery beyond the Rangitata Gorge to Mesopotamia Station in the high country.
