Description

Discover Christchurch and its surroundings from 2 very different perspectives—the tranquil Avon River and the majestic Port Hills. Admire the Botanic Gardens or the heart of the city during a relaxing punting ride, and revel in the panoramic views from the sky-high Christchurch Gondola.

Punting on the Avon
See Christchurch from a different perspective as a seasoned punter in traditional Edwardian garb propels you along the serene Avon River. Choose your departure point and glide out in the flat-bottomed boat. Travel through the Christchurch Botanic Gardens to admire the city's famous flora, or wind your way through the burgeoning developments in the heart of the city.

Christchurch Gondola
Make your way to Heathcote Valley for a spectacular gondola ride with 360-degree views over Christchurch and its surroundings. As your gondola climbs over 1,640 feet (500 metre) into the Port Hills, gaze out from the panoramic windows at the city skyline, the Canterbury Plains, and the Southern Alps all the way to Lyttleton Harbour and Banks Peninsula. At the summit, you can disembark for a ride through history in the Time Tunnel, relax in the café, or explore the area's variety of walking trails.
