We are looking at running a cruise from Christchurch up to Cave Stream near Castle hill.
The cruise will start at Raeward Fresh near the airport, conveniently placed right next to the BP.
Route will be north of Raeward Fresh, getting off at the Kaiapoi exit, then along the scenic inland route to Cave Stream via the Sheffield pie shop at Oxford and Castle hill for a quick stop.
For Cave Stream, everyone will need two head torches and a towel for the cave. The cave is 600m long and takes anywhere up to 45 mins to get through. Due to the nature of the weather in the area, extra safety cautions should be observed. The information can be found at:
The route to be taken on the day:
This is a social cruise.The road along the inland scenic route, the motorway and up around Castle Hill are prone to Highway Patrol. Although spirited driving is the order of the day, Exceeding the speed limit or driving in a manner that could endanger others is not welcomed.
The cruise is subject to weather, If it is unsafe to do Cave Stream or the weather looks unfavourable we may head to Castle hill as a back up destination for the day.
