SPONSORSHIPS AND SUPPORT

We are supporting organisations and initiatives that encourage youngsters’ sporting development, the ecological and environmental health of the harbour and popular local community events.

In the last year our sponsorships included:

  • Lyttelton junior netball, rugby and football
  • Quail Island Ecological Restoration Trust
  • Lyttelton Festival of Lights – fireworks display
  • Lyttelton Community House Trust
  • Lyttelton Seafarers’ Centre

PORT TOURS

Our most popular community initiative in the last year has been our Port Tours by boat. These free 90-minute tours have been running monthly since September 2015.

The tour covers the Inner Harbour, Container Terminal and reclamation area, showing the Port developments underway and explaining our plans for the future. These tours have been booked out and feedback has consistently rated them as ‘excellent’. Watch the video for tour highlights.
