It's a Fact...
TO KAIKOURA
In colonial times, reaching Kaikoura was difficult and often perilous with rough country and numerous river crossings. Despite the hazardous coastline and the changeable weather proving the cause of many shipwrecks, most people and freight travelled by sea. As access by land improved with the construction of roads and bridges, the port was closed in 1949. An old chimney near Fyffe House is all that remains of the port's custom house.
