Rich Heritage, New Life

A renewal project is underway to breathe life back into Lyttelton’s west side waterfront. Set between two traditional sites, Ōhinehou and Te Ana o Huikai, Te Ana will encompass an upgraded marina as well as a promenade, eateries, shops and workplaces – all befitting the colourful character of this historic township.

A Unique Location

Port of Lyttelton

A working Port and trade hub for the South Island, Lyttelton is an eclectic mix of industry, creativity and history. The east side has a rich legacy as a place of shelter and food gathering by both European settlers and the original Māori inhabitants, Ngāti Wheke. Te Ana will once again open up Lyttelton’s harbourside and make it a place where people can connect and enjoy the waterfront.

A New Marina

Safe Anchorage

Te Ana will feature Christchurch’s only floating berth marina, complete with walk on access. On completion 170 floating berths with lengths of 10m or more will provide shelter for yachts and powerboats. All berths will be supplied with water and power services and supported landside with carparks, lighting, security, a new marina office and washroom facilities. New berths will be delivered in stages.

A Place to Enjoy

Landside Connection

Initial landside rejuvenation will feature a pedestrian promenade, an improved sea wall and a much tidier environment with a mix of amenities including car parking, lighting and native plantings. Future stages are likely to include marine related retail, professional offices and a selection of restaurants and cafés to round out the area. Our long term vision is to transform Te Ana into a thriving area of Lyttelton for the enjoyment of locals and visitors alike.
