Find an adventure that is short, simple, local, cheap – yet still fun, exciting, challenging, refreshing and rewarding.

When you creep over the brow of the Hill Top from Little River to a view of Akaroa Harbour, you see a jutty out bit of land kind of centre of the head of the harbour.

Kinda looks like that dangly thing at the back of your throat if you open up the gob when staring at a mirror.

Well, from the third-bedroom in Duvauchelle, it looked short, simple, certainly local even if across the water and cheap considering we were going to head there on foot to explore.

The landscape forefront is the jutty dangly bit.
Historical significance to our people – both Māori and non-Māori.
Washed up from the deep – it was paper, scissors, rock as to who captured the pic, on zoom!

We were absolutely encouraged with the view from it’s highest point with surround panoramic beauty.

And the historical significance with it being an old site of a former Māori pā (Māori village) Ōnawe.

And furthermore, the fact that it is only accessible at low tide.

Certainly put this on your visit list to explore.

Take the time to sit and absorb what the jutty dangly slice of Peninsula has to offer.

Then, when you creep over the brow each and every time you crest the Hill Top and see it, we are confident a grin will smirk across your face as you reminisce.

Miss the tide, and it’ll be a grimace.

From the jutty dangly slice of paradise, Duvauchelle to the middle right along the coastline.
Low tide micro-adventure a must.
