Sightseeing
Opened in 1932, New Regent Street is Christchurch’s only complete heritage streetscape. With beautiful Spanish Mission architecture, and a distinctive pastel colour scheme, it’s long been popular with locals and tourists alike. In amongst the history and heritage there’s an exciting range of businesses in the boutique shops. From Gelato, cookies and cakes to a whisky bar, diamond jewelers and gifts. New Regent Street is all about pleasure and indulgence. Whether sipping a latte while admiring the period features and attractive landscaping, indulging in a haircut and manicure, or meeting friends for drinks, you’ll find it a stylish haven for pleasure and relaxation. Located right in the heart of Christchurch city, New Regent Street is close to major hotels and Cathedral Square, and just a short stroll from the ReStart Mall. There are car parks nearby, several bus routes on adjacent streets, and we’ll also be on the tram route once it reopens. However you get to New Regent Street, we look forward to welcoming you and indulging you.

Bringing together the reliability of an enclosed, 7-day-trading shopping environment with the fresh, local, vibrancy of a farmers' market in the heart of the Christchurch CBD. Supporting local growers and small businesses by purchasing fresh, organic produce, meat, seafood, freshly baked goods, coffee and more. A strong point of a farmers market is a reduced carbon footprint, minimising food packaging and waste and travel both for producers and purchasers of locally grown food. In the heart of the city, Riverside Lanes offers a truly fresh, wonderfully upmarket shopping experience outside of the traditional suburban mall. Connecting to Riverside Market (an indoor, 7-day trading market with fresh, organic locally grown produce and many different eateries) the Lanes will provide extended options for eating out as well as shopping opportunities with major fashion brands already confirmed. Riverside Lanes will add to the revitalisation of the Christchurch central city providing a destination spot for locals and tourists alike.

Start: Junction of Rapaki Road and Centaurus Road, Hillsborough. Finish: Rapaki Track car park, Summit Road. Distance: 3.5km. Time: 45 minutes one way. Dogs: Must be kept on leads. Parking: Parking is available in the wider area. In busy times try parking at Hansen Park or Fifield Terrace and warm up with a stroll along the Heathcote River before tackling the Rapaki Track. Description: Start at the junction of Rapaki Road and Centaurus Road. Walk up Rapaki Road until you reach the signage for Rapaki Track. The track gradually climbs, offering pleasant views into the valley below. In the mid-section it flattens, then climbs again at a good gradient to the Rapaki Track car park on Summit Road. At this point the car park marks the end of vehicle access along the Summit Road and is a popular spot to rest and take in the views of Lyttelton Harbour and the volcanic peaks and ridges of Banks Peninsula. Alternatively, a 10 minute walk up to the summit of Mt Vernon is well worthwhile. From here you can return the same way or create a longer loop walk by returning via Huntsbury Track. You may also like to tackle a section of the Crater Rim Walkway in either direction from this point.
