Reset your clock. Reset life's pace.

800-odd kilometres off the east coast of mainland New Zealand, you'll find the Chathams with it's own time zone 45 minutes ahead. Life round here though, moves in the well worn grooves of the past.  More time to soak in weather-beaten landscapes, deserted beaches, unique flora and fauna, and rich cultural and historical heritage, the Chathams offer visitors an experience like no other.
