Kaitorete Spit at Birdlings Flat

Stand at the edge of the Canterbury Plains and appreciate geology in action on a visit to Kaitorete Spit.

Pebbles have been smoothed on their journey down rivers from the Southern Alps to the ocean and then pushed up as the currents are blocked by the volcanic cliffs of Banks Peninsula.

Birdlings Flat Road. Turn off State Highway 75 on Poranui Beach Road. The road ends after 2kms at the beach.
