A rich source of inspiration for Maori myth and legend, the Port Hills, with its volcanic rocky outcrops and numerous walkways, marks the southeast divide between Christchurch and the Banks Peninsula. From the Summit Road, there are spectacular views of beautiful bays and inlets on one side and, on the other, Christchurch, its beaches, and the majestic Southern Alps stretching into the west. There is always plenty to do, with bush walks, paragliding, mountain biking, gondola rides and excellent climbing at Castle Rock, which in Maori myth was believed to be the citadel of the Rainbow God, Kahukura.
