Awaroa/Godley Head Walk

Coastal loop near Christchurch with WWII history (3hrs)

Godley Heads and Gun emplacements

This enjoyable 9.3km loop track starts at Taylor’s Mistake, 17km from Christchurch and not far from Sumner.

There are panoramic views of Lyttelton Harbour and the eastern coastline, remnants of the historic Godley Head coastal defence battery that was designed to protect Lyttleton Harbour in WWII, plus beautiful beaches and bays.

A very enjoyable walk.
