A) Historic Immigration barracks

Start your walk at the historic immigration barracks

Located beside the Lyttelton Harbour Information Centre, the historic barracks is marked with a plaque. 

The immigration barracks were built to house the newly arriving settlers in 1850. The building situated there also served as the school, church and town hall for wealthier settlers. 

The Building is no longer present, but benches provide a nice resting and reflecting place. 

The Information Centre beside the site was once a tailor, and prior to becoming the information centre, it also served as an arts and crafts shop.
