X marks the hitching spot.
The best option used Metro to be Belfast, but recent (2018) changes to motorways and bus routes and timetables and pricing mean Woodend   Good spot is directly opposite Woodend Methodist Church. In case of hot or wet weather hitch from the best option now St Barnabas Anglican Church there is to take a Metro bus to Woodendsmall roof structure that can provide sun or rain shelter.  
http://wwwIf you are headed highway 1 to Picton via Kaikoura and your ride is going h7 toward Hanmer Springs you are best to get out at Amberley (best spot is near the Charles Upham statue see map below) as the intersection of highway 1 and highway 7 is not a good spot to hitch North from.metroinfo.co.nz/journeyplanner/?Region=Christchurch&mode=full#/journey_plans/new
If it is a nice day (not too hot or raining) the best spot is directly opposite Woodend Methodist Church. In case of hot or wet weather hitch from the St Barnabas Anglican Church - there is a small roof structure that can provide sun or rain shelter.
Note: If you are headed highway 1 to Picton via Kaikoura and your ride is going h7 toward Hanmer Springs you are best to get out at Amberley (best spot is near the Charles Upham statue see map below) as the intersection of highway 1 and h7 is not a good spot to hitch North from.

===HITCHING WEST===
(Toward Arthur's Pass and Hokitika, The West Coast.)
Bus to near the Caltex Russely at the Yaldhurst Road/Russley Road intersection - this is at the start of State Highway 73 but there is a really good area for cars to pull over not far up the 73 where it's goes from two lanes to one and before they get up to highway speed.
