Diamond Harbour, New Zealand
Diamond Harbour is a small settlement on Banks Peninsula, in Canterbury, New Zealand. It is on the peninsula's northern coast, on the southern shores of Lyttelton Harbour, and is administratively part of the city of Christchurch.
A ferry connects Diamond Harbour to Lyttelton, on the harbour's northern shore. In combination with buses from Lyttelton to Christchurch, this allows residents of Diamond Bay to commute to the city.
Until the 2012 earthquake Godley House ,the original cottage and later homestead of Mark Stoddart, the early settler who supposedly named the bay, was still standing. However, it was critically damaged in the 2011 earthquake and has since been demolished.
