Botanic Gardens

A blissful place to relax

Christchurch botanic gardens

A superb, sprawling 21ha of gardens, trees and walkways contained on three sides by the twisting Avon River, the Botanical Gardens on a good day should not be missed. This is a blissful place for a stroll in the Central City.

Botanic Gardens Visitor Centre runs tours, has a cafe, and has won architectural awards.
