Beautiful, eerie wind sculpted limestone. This is a pleasant picnic spot for families as well as great wandering area. It's easy to lose yourself in the mystical qualities of this stone city. There is plenty of climbing to be had here in all grades, so it may be hard to feel crowded here.
From Christchurch take highway 73 west towards Springfield and Arthur's Pass.
