Caroline Bay Beach - TimaruMore
Recently the AA Traveller Facebook page conducted a poll on the most popular beaches in NZ. Caroline Bay was rated 4th overall and easily the most popular in the South Island.
The beach is sheltered by the harbour breakwater and is the only sandy beach between Oamaru and Banks Peninsula. March 2014 saw Caroline Bay beach being voted the most popular beach in the South Island.
Allied with the popular swimming beach is the annual summer carnival run by the voluntary Caroline Bay Association. The carnival has been operating for over a hundred years and draws people from around much of New Zealand to attend or assist with its operation. The carnival is a traditional family affair with free concerts, rides and sideshow style games.
Caroline Bay itself is located between the Pacific Ocean and the Timaru Central Business District, being separated from the main shopping area by the South Island Main Trunk Railway lines. The Piazza straddles the railway line and provides access for pedestrians via a grand staircase or via a lift which is unique for a public park in this country. Caroline Bay covers an area of 34 hectares excluding the beach.Read More

Te Ana Maori Rock Art- TimaruMore
The majority of the rock art sites in New Zealand are found in Te Waipounamu, or the South Island. They are widely spread from Fiordland in the southeast to Karamea in the northwest. However, the major concentrations of sites are located in the limestone rich areas of the Aoraki district covering North Otago and South Canterbury. There are two main types of rock art. The art can be scratched or carved into stone, or it can be painted or drawn onto the stone’s surface. In New Zealand it is recorded that the rock art paint was made from animal or bird fat mixed with vegetable gum and soot or kokowai (red ochre) to make black or red paint.Read More

Trevor Griffiths Rose Garden – TimaruMore
Opened in December 2001, the garden was established to preserve and honour the collection of old roses gathered over a lifetime by the celebrated rosarian Trevor Griffiths. Designed by the Christchurch architect Sir Miles Warren, the garden comprises a series of geometric beds radiating from the central pergola - clearly seen from the piazza above. The design has strong lines created by the use of steel structures - gazebos and central pergola while arbours link the whole. A small fountain pool and classical bronze figure forms the centerpiece. A planting plan identifies 1150 roses. Besides the old roses English roses are planted in twos and threes to provide continuous flowering with a gradual progression of colour from one end of the garden to the other. December, when the ramblers and noisettes are in flower, is spectacular. The garden is owned by the community and maintained by the Timaru District Council and volunteers.Read More
