What to pack


In summer you’ll need your togs, plenty of sunblock, a sun hat and some good walking shoes to make the most of Timaru’s excellent walking tracks. Bring something warm for the cooler evenings.


In winter you’ll need your winter woollies, particularly if you’re heading into alpine country. If you’re headed to the wilderness to go hiking, hunting or exploring, always check in with local guides and experts on what to wear and what to bring.
