“...The beach agates of Canterbury can be found from just South of the Rangitata River mouth all the way North to Birdlings Flat. This represents well over 100km of coastline. Most Mid Canterbury rivers contribute agate to the beaches and their respective types can be recognized and found at Birdlings Flat...”
