Who are we?

The Summit Roads Society currently owns three reserves on the Christchurch Port Hills – Ohinetahi Bush Reserve, Omahu Bush & Gibraltar Rock, and Linda Woods Reserve (formally known as Tussock Hill).


The Summit Road Society (Inc.), formed in 1948, aims to further the vision of Harry Ell, by working to enhance, preserve and protect the nature, beauty and open character of the hills of Banks Peninsula for people to enjoy.
