Ashburton is a large town in the Canterbury Region, on the east coast of the South Island of New Zealand. 

It sits between two major rivers, so fly fishing is the local obsession. Extensive irrigation schemes have transformed the land, and the story of Ashburton’s triumph over drought is told at the town’s main museum (there are six museums in Ashburton, including a vintage railway museum, aviation museum and car museum). Local art and craft galleries provide interesting shopping. Both of the nearby rivers are known for salmon and sea-run trout.

You'll appreciate the high quality shopping precincts, eclectic cafes, restaurants, craft shops, a nationally recognised art gallery and museum. Ashburton has retained solid, old-fashion values, great  attitude that is reflected in many aspects of life and it's achievements for the town both in the quality of life and commercial success.

Ashburton offers top class sporting facilities catering for all codes, including an international standard hockey pitch, superb tennis courts and challenging golf courses.
