Last Saturday we were a bit stuck for ideas and both quite in the mood for bruch, so the perfect solution was to drive over to Lyttleton Harbour, have brunch in the famous Lyttleton Coffee Company and then walk up to and over the Crater Rim Walkway.
Brunch at Lyttleton Coffee Company did not disappoint and it was the best we have had in Christchurch. Service, view, food, coffee all get a 10/10.
We grabbed a white chocolate, passion fruit muffin for later and headed up the hill to the start of the Urumau Reserve track ( No.5 on pic below), which takes about 45mins – hour to get to the top of the crater. It is quite steep and you have to climb in places but very manageable. Then we walked along the crater rim (Track 3) until reaching the Pioneering Womens Memorial and then returned down to Lyttleton via The Bridal Path (Track 1) which took about an hour or just over. It was the best walk so far on the port hills and I would highly recommend it.
