Getting Here and Around in Murchison
Getting Here and Around
Although it's 100 km (62 miles) from the nearest town Murchison is easy to access by road, sitting right on State Highway 6. It's a 1¾-hour drive south of Nelson, 4¼ hours north of Christchurch, and 1½ hours east of Westport (without scenic stops). It is also one of only a couple of comfort and fuel stops on these long stretches so if (sadly) you are only passing through, take advantage of its conveniences.
InterCity buses pass through daily. InterCity runs services between Nelson and Christchurch and Nelson and the West Coast.
