Punting on the Avon River

Relaxed fun & see the city

Punting on the Avon. Christchurch.NZ

What could be more English than punting on the Avon River? Punting tours are taken aboard flat-bottomed boats, poled along by a friendly straw hat-wearing punter from the platformed rear end of the boat.

There are two departure points – from Antigua Boat Sheds or Worcester Bridge – check on the website to see which is in operation before turning up. Bookings taken online.
