Kerr's Reach is a bit notorious at not coming up when doing google searches - Hockey Lane is just below the club and works when using the Wises Website.  Kerr's Reach is located between the Avon River and what was Porritt Park.  The nearest roads are Avonside Drive and Wainoni Road.  Click here to see the Wises Map.
