Hut in Port Levy
The Fisherman’s Hut - with short 10min Farm walk
The Fishermans Hut at 'The Wonderful's', Keirangi, Camp Bay was originally built during the depression in the early 1930's, still clad in original flattened Kerosene tins. Now, authentically restored for you to enjoy this incredible spot. Set right on the rocky coastline, feel miles away and take in the sea air. Only 45mins from Christchurch CBD. Relax, explore the rocky shores, fish and visit the beautiful beaches close by. Hike the Old Pack Track to Little Port Cooper and enjoy the serenity.
