Has not been rated.


Kaiapoi Lakes is a 25 hectare native reserve of district significance located at the northern end of Kaiapoi, 2 kilometres from the town centre. The eastern-most lake is a significant breeding ground for rare water bird species such as the New Zealand Scaup and the New Zealand Shoveler. This lake is also a significant site for coarse fishing with a Discrete (species limited to coarse and native fish) Coarse Fishery established by the North Canterbury Fish and Game Council. The south-western most lake has been primarily developed for casual recreation and the tranquil environment is enjoyed by picnickers, walkers and kayakers. A walk around the lake is a distance of just under 1 kilometre. A car park is provided a short distance off the main road. Dogs must be kept under control and are not permitted within the bird sanctuary area east of the main road.
