Christchurch ATTRACTIONS See all

Christchurch Botanic Gardens

Christchurch is known as the garden city, an Anglophile settlement of well-tended gardens and tree-lined streets. Pride of place in this flower-loving town goes to the Botanic Gardens, attractively set within a loop of the winding Avon River.

The gardens are planted with thousands of exotic and indigenous plants, with particular note going to its lime tree walkways, inviting lawns and seasonal flowers such as magnolias, azaleas and roses.

A number of conservatories protect a range of species, including desert plants, tropical blooms, begonias, alpine plants and orchids.

The gardens are an ideal location for a picnic, or to find a relaxing spot for an hour or two, away from the bustle of the city.

Practical Info

The Botanic Gardens are on the western edge of central Christchurch, less than half a mile from the bustling shops and cafés of the town center.

The entrance is on Rolleston Avenue, near the inner-city tramway loop.
