At our door step is Caroline Bay. Holiday-makers have been flocking to this stretch of sandy, safe beach for more than 100 years. This seaside haven retains some its traditional Edwardian flavour with promenades, playground and picnic areas. Its long-running annual Christmas - New Year carnival continues to draw visitors from throughout New Zealand and beyond for family days of entertainment and fairground rides. The Bay area also boasts the Trevor Griffith Rose Garden, the Piazza, the Soundshell, Mini Golf, Junior Playground, Paddling Pool, Skate Park and off course a safe sandy beach.
Caroline Bay has received a major upgrade thanks to The Timaru District Council.
The Piazza offers wheelchair access from the Bay hill down to the Trevor Griffith's Rose Garden. New water features, paved areas, courtyards, car parks, a scate park and renovation of the Caroline Bay Hall have enhanced the bay area considerably. The old caretakers house was demolished to make way for the new formal garden associated with the existing Tearooms building. New car parking area has been developed on one side of the tea rooms and an elegant courtyard is establishing is self on the other side. The tearooms building and garden operate as a private function facility available for you to hire for wedding ceremonies, functions, etc...
