Canterbury - Selwyn Business Networking Groups
Selwyn District is a predominantly rural area in central Canterbury, on the east coast of New Zealand's South Island which appeals to culture and nature lovers, thrill seekers and connoisseurs of life’s finest things.
Take a breath of fresh air and appreciate Selwyn’s diverse landscapes. The dramatic Southern Alps and rolling foothills rise above the fields. The rivers flow from the high country across the rural plains, out to Te Waihora/Lake Ellesmere and the coast. The patchwork plains are home to farms and small towns across the region.
The hills and mountains offer a wealth of activities, from skiing to mountain biking, jetboating and horse trekking in the high country or simply taste what delicious flavours the region has on offer from the Farmer’s Markets or vineyards.
In 2020, Selwyn was the nation's fastest growing district with new medical centres, daycare centres, cafes, shops and schools which have been built recently to support Rolleston’s population spike and the huge housing developments.
