Selwyn District Council media release: 11th December 2018

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

The 100 Days of Summer guide from the Selwyn District Council will be arriving in the district's letterboxes 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.

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

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.

100 days of summer“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.”

There should never a day of head scratching 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 – so residents should keep their 100 Days of Summer list handy.

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

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. Just tag us at @sensationalselwyn and you’re in the draw. Flick your pictures through to competition[at] if you’re not on Instagram.

Random winners will be drawn throughout the summer and you can enter as many times as you like.
