We live in Christchurch and always enjoy a walk through our city's Botanic Gardens. This time we were specifically on the hunt for penguins in the Pop Up Penguins which are scattered through the city ...
One of the oldest and most bountiful botanic gardens in New Zealand
Take a long walk under mature trees; visit the rose garden or huge hothouses, see the Dahlias and Native Garden. There are expansive lawns and delightful sculptures and of course the lovely Avon River...
The Christchurch Botanic Garden is undoubtedly the most comfortable and pleasant place in the city. Tens of thousands of plants have different colors in different seasons. It has 10 unique special parks, such as herb garden, rose garden, fern botanical garden, water garden, rock garden, heather garden and so on. The layout is casual and natural, the garden is rich in shade, the air is fresh, and there are few key people. It is a good place for rest and recuperation. The Avon River passes through the park and can participate in rafting when the weather is good. It feels like visiting Cambridge.
Christchurch Botanic Garden is one of the best botanical gardens in New Zealand. It has flowers all year round, and the plants are lush and naturally attract many bird insects. Butterfly bees are frequent visitors, and the albatross is also here, adding a lot to the botanical garden. Vitality and dynamic beauty. The
Avon River runs through it. Whether you choose kayaking or a boat ride, you can see the green trees and flowers on both sides of the river.
Walk in the 30 hectares of forest and flower beauty, wrapped in the green of the heart, we greedily enjoy this natural oxygen bar, the scene is not drunk.
If you want to see why Christchurch is the "garden city," then the Botanic Gardens are a must-visit. You can arrive as early as 7 AM to experience this magnificent collection of flora from New Zealand and elsewhere - and best of all, you are sure to notice quickly that admission is free! Did you know that the Botanic Gardens were launched in 1863 with the simple planting of just one English Oak Tree? Today, you can see that the Botanic Gardens are more than just trees - the Botanic Gardens consist of 21 hectares boasting trails, art, plants, a cafe, and conservatories. Before your visit, double check that the facilities you want to visit are open, as in the wake of the earthquake, several buildings have been temporarily closed for earthquake strengthening work.
