Omihi is a picturesque area just 45 minutes north of Christchurch. The first thing you’ll notice here is acres of grapevines. This is one of New Zealand’s premier wine regions - Pinot Noir and Riesling grapes do very well here.
There are also olive groves, nut farms, fields of lavender, sheep and beef farms, as well as scenic walks, bike tracks and gorgeous beaches nearby. Omihi is only 15mins north of Amberley where there is a Countdown supermarket, as well as a number of cafes, restaurants and shops.
The Glenmark Rugby Club, netball club and Omihi Tennis club is just across the road from Omihi School. By 2018 the rugby club will have a brand new clubrooms/event centre/hall that the school will have access to.
