Swimming Pool

The Kaikoura Community Facilities Charitable Trust has commissioned an investigative study into a proposed new Aquatic Centre for Kaikoura. Managed by the Tasman Regional Sports Trust, the pool regularly hosts swimming clubs, learn to swim programmes, fun days and barbecues.

The wharf deck is designed for highway normal loading as per the Transit bridge manual, and the fendering system is designed for a boat of a maximum loading of 100 tonnes displacement (a fishing vessel of up to 20m long). Cruise ships visiting Kaikoura are now able to provide for disembarking passengers to tender boats at this new wharf, where previously these ships were limited to using the South Bay facility.


Rural Fire Control

The Kaikoura District Council is responsible for administering the Rural Fires Act, and its role is to respond to rural fires, to monitor the fire risk and determine when it is appropriate to restrict the lighting of fires, and to issue fire permits in an environmentally sustainable manner.


why zero waste

The cost of building a new landfill or joining the other Canterbury councils in developing a landfill at Kate Valley were something our community couldn?t afford. Innovative Waste Kaikoura?s services can assist everyone in the district to achieve achieve Zero Waste by simply reducing, reusing and recycling resources. In 1998 Kaikoura adopted a policy of zero waste to landfill by 2015, only the second community in New Zealand to do this.
