Timaru Hotels Accommodation

Timaru is located 157 kilometres southwest of Christchurch and about 196 kilometres northeast of Dunedin on the eastern Pacific coast of the South Island. Timaru is a major port in the southern Canterbury region of New Zealand. Timaru is located on rolling hills created from the lava flows of the extinct Mt Horrible volcano, which last erupted many thousands of years ago. The result is that most of the main streets are undulating, a clear contrast with the flat landscape of the Canterbury Plains to the north. This volcanic rock is used for the construction of local "bluestone"' buildings. The Timaru urban area is the second largest city in the Canterbury Region, after Christchurch. Accommodation in and around Timaru includes - Hotels, Apartments, Motels, Serviced Apartments, Bed & Breakfasts, Homestays, Holiday Parks, Campgrounds, Backpackers, etc.
