Christchurch Botanic Gardens
There's beautiful, different kind of flowers, huge trees. You can always go on a tree swing if you're lucky to find it :) Best date spot ever.
If exploring nature is your kids preference then "the Gardens" is ideal. Trees to climb, lakes and the river to watch fish and ducks, tonnes of hidden paths and interesting sculptures. For adults, there are two cafes (one is Ilex mentioned in our cafes section) and the other is called Duck Duck…
The gardens are beautiful to wander through, see the River Avon, and the Museum is worth a visit.
Gorgeous public gardens in the centre of Christchurch near the museum and the historic old university. Great spot for a walk or just sit in the sun and watch the world go by.

“They have the most amazing soft tacos. The staff are friendly and the food is simple yet packed full of flavour. 20 minutes away in the CBD. ”
“Hosting local and international art exhibitions, the building is worth a wander about. The Gallery shop contains an eclectic selection of giftware.”
