Explore Akaroa at your own pace with the Audio Guide, our favourite tour
recorded on CD and available for hire from the Akaroa Information Centre, complete with player, easy to follow map and historic photographs.
The Audio Guide is available 7 days per week, with no need to pre-book.
The Audio Guide starts at the Information Centre in the historic heart of Akaroa, includes 18 points of
interest and ends at the Main Wharf. The 1.5k gentle walk is on flat streets and suitable for all fitness levels. It takes about 90 minutes
to complete. The dramatic story of Akaroa's role
at the birth of New Zealand unfolds as you listen to a rich tapestry
of tales and find the town's most beautiful buildings.
The Audio Guide is the ideal activity for independent travellers who love to explore and learn more
about the culture and heritage of their destination. Just read what our users have to say:|
