Hard to explain the attraction of this river. It does not have any exceptional features but it is so very pretty, peaceful and simply out of a storybook.

Although we did not go punting, we truly enjoyed walking the banks through the gardens, and feeding the ducks, especially the unusual Shellbacks indigenous to the South Island.

A beautiful river amidst a lovely park setting and so peaceful ... hard to realise you are in the middle of a bustling city. A great retreat.

We had a free day in Christchurch so I went to see the Botanical Gardens and as I walked along the Avon River pathway I noticed some people in small punt boats enjoying the river. Even though severe flooding had occurred about a week before it was a pleasant quiet trip and very reasonable in price.
