Christchurch On Your Own

Your driver will provide a brief orientation and point out places of interest. Start near the Christchurch visitor information centre. Places of interest include the Canterbury Museum, punting on the Avon River, the Botanic Gardens, Hagley Park and the Cashel Street Mall with the iconic Ballantynes department store.
