Methven Mt Hutt Guide NZ - Tourism Guide & Community Information

Welcome to Methven Mt Hutt. This comprehensive online guide provides information for residents and visitors to the amazing space of Methven Mt Hutt, located within Mid Canterbury in the South Island of New Zealand.

We have the fastest rate of population growth of any town in Mid Canterbury, with people attracted by the lifestyle, schools, welcoming community, and the proximity to the picturesque foothills and high country.

A lot of people visit Methven to explore our amazing back yard which provides an exciting array of summer and winter outdoor activities including skiing, mountain biking & cycling, walking & hiking, fishing, jet boating, clay bird shooting, hot air ballooning, horse riding, hunting, golf, 4WD high country adventures, and helicopter scenic flights.

A wide variety Methven Mt Hutt events are held throughout the year – ski area events, sporting events (including MTB, cycling, running & walking events), live music & gigs, markets, community festivals, weddings, and conferences.

Traditionally a sheep and grain growing area, irrigation has changed the way we use our land. Dairy farming and specialised crops are now also an important part of our agricultural industry.

Not the best day for the dear old Brown today but thanks to the fantastic fire fighters from Methven, Ashburton, Rakaia and Christchurch, things are not as bad as they could have been. We are crossing fingers and toes that we can reopen the Main Bar and the Mac's Backyard Bar as soon as possible. We need to get all the electrical, plumbing and alarm systems checked before we can put an exact day on it but we are aiming for the end of the week. We will keep you posted as soon as we know.
Thanks for all the kind messages and thoughts from everyone - this is why this community is so great and we love to live here!
