“Lovely little church”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

The church has a lovely setting against a green background. The inside is quite plain but we enjoyed visiting.

“Interesting stop and history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2014

We loved the town of Akaroa and this was our first stop. The needlepoint cushions on the seats were worth the visit in themselves! We met a local couple who spent quite a time telling us about the past and current state of their town. Further down the street, another church was having a yard sale with beautiful items.

I am not religious but appreciate a beautiful church when I see one. I didn't understand why this church was listed as an attraction in akaroa?

“Quaint”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2013

A quaint little church with a lot of history. It only takes a couple of minutes to stroll up the little hill and view this church but it's worth the effort. The roses were in full bloom and the view was delightful.

“Beautiful Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2013 via mobile

There is a real feeling of history as well as sanctity in this small wooden church. The town's French heritage is also there and he community's development owed a lot to the Marists from France who pioneered there.

Not on Tripadvisor yet but Wilma's Yellow Limousine is well worth a tour in. Wilma's is highly informative and it is lovely to have a big yellow stretch to go in when you leave your cruise ship while others are queuing for their buses! And it is the best bargain in the Southern Hemisphere!
