THINGS TO DO IN GERALDINE

GO HARD OUT OR TAKE THINGS EASY - THE CHOICE IS YOURS!

With such stunning scenery, rivers, gorges and mountains right on our doorstep, it's no surprise that there's lots of adventure activities on offer in and around Geraldine. Three rivers snake their way through the district; the mighty Rangitata that rises in the Southern Alps and the Waihi and Orari, both with their sources inland in the Four Peaks range. These waterways offer a variety actives, from white water rafting and kayaking the Rangitata gorge, to canyoning and exploring the waterfalls in the foothills.

If you'd prefer to stay on dry land, Peel Forest, Pioneer Park and Talbot Forest offer the chance to walk through native bush with an intoxicating soundtrack of bellbirds and warblers while you're followed along the paths by curious fantails and tomtits. If you're after something a little creepier, take a torch and venture into the bush after dark to see an amazing array of spiders, moths, weta and who knows, maybe a bat or two.

Talking of animals, you may be more keen of those of a domesticated variety. If so there are farm tours, alpaca walking and petting zoos to get up close with something a bit more cuddly.

For those after something a little less outdoorsy, Geraldine has a selection of indoor attractions, including art galleries and museums.
