Gondola & Punting on the Avon
About this Experience
Admire the changing face of Christchurch as you are expertly guided gently along the Avon River. Your guide – dressed in traditional Edwardian attire – will steer you leisurely from the historic Antigua Boat Sheds through the Botanic Gardens, where you can enjoy the fauna the ‘Garden City’ is famed for. Or why not opt to set off from the City Departure Point? Making your way through the heart of Christchurch, you will learn all about the city’s rebuild as you progress along the river. In winter, you’ll even be handed blankets and hot water bottles to keep you toasty on the ride.
