Methven Mt Hutt Guide NZ - Tourism Guide & Community Information

Welcome to the Methven Mt Hutt Region

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.

Methven has a permanent population of around 1,700 and is located near the foothills of the Southern Alps, one hour’s drive south-west of Christchurch.

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.
