The heart of
North Canterbury.

Eat. Shop. Pamper. Play. Stay.

Amberley came into being in 1864, when Mrs. Carter, one of the earliest freehold settlers, put it up for sale – at eight pounds a quarter acre.

The original settlement included a handful of residents and businesses, including a blacksmith, a wheelwright and a carpenter and was named Amberley, after Mrs Carter's family farm in Oxfordshire, England.
