The large town of Ashburton serves as a hot destination for fishing connoisseurs, and it’s also a vibrant farming district. Since it sits between Rakaia and Rangitata Rivers, visitors in the region have easy access to spots for fly-fishing, paddleboarding, and kayaking activities. The area was not always lush, and before European settlers arrived, it was a barren land with hardly any fertile capabilities. By visiting one of six museums in Ashburton, you’ll learn about how the region overcame this dry phase, becoming the farming hot spot it is today. Travelers can also indulge in plenty of local art and craft galleries, cafes, and restaurants in the town, so if you’re a foodie that loves foods made with fresh produce, you’ll want to visit Ashburton.
