Southshore Eco Tours

Explore remarkable nature right in the city’s front yard. Our affordable private eco tours journey through the internationally acclaimed wetlands and sandspit area of coastal Christchurch. This unique habitat is home to over 120 bird species (including the migratory godwits) with numbers swelling to over 30,000. Many more creatures thrive in the waters, under the mud, and in the surrounding flora. The Avon-Heathcote Ihutai Estuary and Southshore Spit area has a rich geological, ecological, and settlement history. This everchanging environment is also affected by earthquakes, tsunamis, human activity, pollution, and sea-level rise due to climate change. Our tours include short walks, with knowledgeable local guides.
