About Christchurch Botanic Gardens

The Christchurch Botanic Gardens are a major tourist attraction for Christchurch and are located next to the Canterbury Museum, another attraction. The main entrance is on Rolleston Street which has many old heritage buildings.

The Botanic Gardens are a must see. Ut started in 1863 when an English oak was planted to commemorate the marriage of Prince Albert and Princess Alexandra. Since then, the gardens have been extended and today encompass 21 hectares and a part of the Avon River. The gardens are next to Hagley Park the largest urban park in Christchurch. The gardens include a significant rose garden, a rock garden, an area of native New Zealand plants and trees, a number of glass houses, and many mature trees and flowers from around the world. There is also a tea house and restaurant in a hertiage building with views of the gardens. At the Information Centre in the Botanic Gardens, you can depart for an organised tour of the city. A great way to see the gardens and the city is to hire a kayak on the Avon River.
