Driving Directions

It will take you just over an hour to reach Methven/Mt Hutt Village from Christchurch International Airport.

Driving south from Christchurch, take SH1 to Rakaia. Turn right at the big salmon, stay on the main road and you will drive straight into Methven. Mt Hutt’s Brinkley Resort is the first place you will see on your right as you enter the town limits.

Alternatively, take the Inland Scenic Route on SH72 through Horarata and Rakaia Gorge and turn left at the first signpost you see (at Mt Hutt Station) to Methven via the alt route. You will drive straight into the Main Street of Methven – turn left just after the Mobil Gas Station and follow the road around to the left again. The entrance to the Resort is about a hundred metres on your left.

Helicopter Transfer

Mt Hutt’s Brinkley Resort has a helipad on site and can arrange helicopter transfers from Christchurch or from other locations.
