Stretching from the Waimakariri River to the Ashley River the Tuhaitara Coastal Park covers an area of 575 ha along 10.5km of coastline that is under the management of the Te Kohaka o Tuhaitara Trust. This Park is a special environment that offers ecological, educational, cultural and recreational opportunities for all who visit.

Environment Canterbury recently prepared a fantastic video on the park which features Greg Byrnes explaining why the park is so important and all the species the park is home too.
