This little town is also booming with the state of the art Lincoln Event Centre designed for everything from conferences to rock concerts, major sporting fixtures to community meetings, exhibitions to weddings and everything in between.

Lincoln is about one hour's drive from Porters ski area or 30 minutes from Christchurch city.

If you feel like staying a while call into Lincoln Motel or The Tea House for a relaxing stay in the finest Lincoln has to offer with their old world style and charm. If you're a craft beer aficionado or just love a great pizza and pint, head to The Laboratory.

Refuel the tanks at the petrol station on Gerald Street before hitting the road again to wherever Selwyn takes you next. There is also a local supermarket and pharmacy here.
