Dear Guest

ENC is thrilled that WHoW's plans for an aquasports park in Kaiapoi have been announced. Our team has been instrumental in focusing this proposal on Kaiapoi and are very excited that WHoW are seeking to establish their whitewater, surf and cable wakeboard parks in one location alongside the Kaiapoi River. Keep an eye on our Facebook page and our website for updates as they happen on this transformational project.

Why Waimakariri: Natural New Zealand Honey

Whilst the thriving natural environment of the Waimakariri District was a key driver in James Malcolm’s choice of location for his new honey business back in 2011, it was the community support and spirit that kept him here after disaster struck.
