An iconic Christchurch activity not to be missed. Admire the beautiful Christchurch Botanic Gardens or the changing face of the city centre as you are expertly guided gently along the Avon River on our authentic Edwardian punting tours. From Park departure point travel leisurely from the historic Antigua Boat sheds through the Botanic Gardens and enjoy the spectacular flora that our �Garden City' is famous for. Alternatively City departure point takes you through the heart of our city through the progressing Avon River precinct and past the many exciting developments that are underway as part of the city's rebuild. The return trip from either departure point takes approximately 30 minutes.
