    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...

    SPECTACULAR BOTANICAL GARDENS.

    Christchurch Botanical Gardens is located in the central city and it was worth enjoying a ride in an electric vehicle which is relaxing and informative tour.

Additional Information

Introduction

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.
