Suitable for Ages: Families

The smooth walls of limestone outcrops in South Canterbury and North Otago provided an ideal canvas for early Māori. Although over 200 years old, many of the rock drawings in the gully have survived the elements and can be clearly seen. Visible at this site are birdmen and fish drawings.

How to get there: Off State Highway 1 south of Pareora onto the Pareora River Road, then left onto Craigmore Valley Road, then left again onto Frenchman’s Gully Road. There is a small roadside sign by a stile. Open daylight hours only.
