Rue Balguerie in Akaroa is home to The Giant’s House, a sculpture mosaic garden “of national signficance”, and not to be missed. I love to visit whenever I’m in Akaroa, as there is always something new to see and wonder at. On the way up there we stopped at St Peter’s Church where my Great Grandfather was once a lay preacher, and noted a plaque to three locals, including my Great Uncle Harold, who gave their lives in the South African (Boer) War.
“If Akaroa’s on your route
The Giant’s House is simply beaut!”
