This summer get out and enjoy what our district has to offer with our helpful list of activities to do in the district over the summer.

Our 100 Days of Summer guide [PDF, 5629 KB] will be arriving in your letterbox this week. The activities range from a perfect day for the thrill-seekers through to something for those just wanting to lounge around in the sun.

Growing up in Darfield and now calling it home, Mayor Sam Broughton has spent many years exploring Selwyn.

He sees this as a great chance to have a chat to friends and family about how to make the most of down time around the holidays.

“This is a great chance to create memorable adventures around Selwyn this summer,” he says. “It’s a magical district, with so much to see and do right on our own doorstep.

I really hope people get out and about and enjoy the great locations and activities around Selwyn.”

With ideas like going fishing, visiting some of the great summer spots, jumping on the TranzAlpine, heading out to Darfield, Leeston and Chamberlains Ford, visiting a winery and dozens more, there should never a day of head scratching – so residents should keep their 100 Days of Summer list handy.

Mayor Broughton says whether you’re new to Selwyn or have lived here for some time, he hopes you use this guide as a tool to relive your favourite memories or create some new ones.

The 100 Day of Summer flyer should be arriving in letterboxes across the district this week.

There’s also a chance to win cool prizes by posting your adventures on Instagram of you trying out one of our 100 Days of Summer activities.
