Take a break on during the drive along the spectacular Summit Road above Akaroa harbour and climb to the top of Lavericks Peak. Encounter the goblin forest en route where weeping moss hangs from the trees and appreciate the name tepatotu loosely translates to place of the fairies. Stunning views in all directions from the top. 1 hour circular walk. Start at tepatotu Scenic Reserve car park on Summit Road. Picnic tables and toilets are available. No dogs.

We were settling in the camping spot and at around 8 PM a very friendly police lady came to tell us camping here was not allowed. No camping here and a guaranteed fine she said if she came back later and saw us again
