Beautiful house and gardens close to downtown Christchurch. Houuse is open as a restaurant. High tea is available. We didn'thave time to eat here but it looked lovely. The gardens are well kept and meander along the river. the gazebo is very unusual.

We really liked our walk through Mona Vale because you could look into the gardens of the homes on the waters edge and there truly are some spectacular houses/architectural structures being put up in Christchurch post quake!

What a lovely place for lunch a walk around the gardens before or after is a must. Lunch was a great selection and the surroundings just beautiful.

We walked through here as part of a bus trip. It's a small, but beautiful setting and the walk along the side of the stream (river?) is quite glorious.
