Keirangi (Camp Bay), located in Lyttelton Harbour is steeped in history
...its loaded with tales of french occupation, Maori vegetable gardens and brutal conditions of early European settlement.
The farm is 306 hectares, ranges from mainly steep tussock covered native pastures, thick with over-sown clovers to flat hilltops and rolling home paddocks. We have two humble historic huts to stay in. The Fisherman's Hut and Little Port Cooper School House.
The Fishermans Hut - was built during the depression in the early 1930's, clad in old pressed out Kerosene cans and restored for families wanting to quickly escape.
Set right on the rocky coastline, feel isolated and off the grid and take in the sea air, yet only 45mins from Christchurch CBD. Relax, explore the rocky shores, fish and visit the beaches close by, maybe even spot a few dolphins if you are lucky. Hike the Old Pak Track to Little Port Cooper and enjoy the serenity.
The Little Port Cooper School House - This is our remote farm hut.
Very historic building, built in 1883.
Basic & naked tramping & camping hut. Enjoy the remoteness, the fishing, trekking, diving, relaxation, the safe sandy beach, native bush, holding paddocks and trough for horses, sea kayaking and so much more! Start with a 1.5hr - 2.5hr tramp over to Little Port Cooper from the Keirangi Homestead, then enjoy a dip in the Bay and the humble historic stay in the Ole School house.
