The second largest city in Canterbury, Timaru sits about midway between Christchurch and Dunedin. Timaru and the surrounding townships of South Canterbury offer excellent lifestyle opportunities. The average commute is 5-10 minutes, there are a great selection of schools from early learning to tertiary, high quality health care, and affordable house prices.
The quality of life within the South Canterbury region is an increasing drawcard for many people who enjoy easy access to the outdoors, a wide range of year-round activities and a safe and welcoming environment in which to raise a family. One of the highlights of South Canterbury life is the ability to choose to live a rural lifestyle and still live within an hour's drive from Timaru city or any of the region's smaller townships.
