Number 1 attraction in Christchurch

If there is one thing to do in Christchurch, its Punting on the Avon. Its relaxing on the water, the seats are comfy and at this time of year, the daffodils and blossom is in full bloom. You will see some friendly ducks, the native diving ducks were our favourite. If you are lucky you will spot some ducklings!! Well worth the money, I have paid full price in the past and still worth every penny. Wish they did an annual pass!! We love this experience.

Just amazing!

Loved every minute - have wanted to do this for so many years. A gorgeous still Sunday morning, a very peaceful and pretty winter's morning! Blankets and hotties supplied which made it all the more lovely. A flawless trip by the Kiwi from Germany! Thanks so much!
