I visited the centre to find out about all the places of interest and things to do in Kaikoura. There was loads of information on everything in the area from whale watching to scenic walks. A great starting point if you are visiting the area for the first time. The only little point was the fact that I spent about 15 minutes in the centre and no member of staff welcomed me or just simply said hello, this was despite the fact that I was the only one there. Friendly conversation costs nothing.

Very useful places when visiting New Zealand. You can perform booking and inquire information for any places in New Zealand.

The visitor centre helped us book a fishing charter. Very helpful staff that made several calls and organised our trip. Thank you so much.

As with all New Zealand information centres they are second to none when it comes to arranging your stay. You can book everything you want and pay for it at the centre (with the exception of commercial flights). The staff are brilliant and will cater for whatever you need. Pity some other sites around the world aren't as good as New Zealand ! Don't stop to ponder---visit the I site every time..
