From Marshland Rd, to the sea, most of the river is public. There is a reserve at the Styx Bridge and a pleasant walk. There was talk of a kayak service down the river - keep an eye out but don't hold your breath.

There are lots of walking paths. It's big enough to get lost. A phone app with a map would have been smart. The river is a delight! There is a dog park available.

A beautiful long river with ample fishing spots and quiet picnic areas. My favourite is near Marshland Rd with a huge array of waterfowl.

The Styx is just outside of CHCH near Willowbank nature park well worth a visit if you are near Willowbank or want to go for a picnic.
