Stanpit Marshes

Stanpit Christchurch

Once the haunt of tobacco smugglers, the flat tidal creeks, reed beds and salt pans of Stanpit are now famed for sheltering rare plants and birdlife, including greater spotted woodpeckers, herons and godwits. A circular trail skirts much of the 65-hectare reserve, which usually has a herd of resident ponies. In summer, there are plenty of spots to sit for a picnic, though at high tide some paths can be flooded.
