On behalf of the people of South Canterbury I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you all to our fantastic city and its surrounds. The Caroline Bay Rock and Hop has established itself as a must go South Island event, I’m sure you will all have a wonderful time and want to return again next year. We have some great things in store, from the main street cruise, the Gala Day and then of course the rock and roll party on the Saturday night and much more.

For those of you who enjoy some shopping Caroline Bay will be full of stalls with plenty to eat, drink and take in. If you would like something more our town centre is only 5 minutes stroll away where you will find many shops from the larger Ballantynes to smaller boutiques.

While you are in our area why not take some time out to enjoy some of the fantastic restaurants, cafés , walks and amazing scenery that we have in beautiful South Canterbury.
