Punting & Botanic Gardens

Board your motorcoach for a 30-minute narrated drive to Christchurch where you will have the chance to experience two iconic Christchurch activities which is not to be missed. Board your Punt, a flat-bottomed boat, and enjoy a leisurely cruise along the Avon River. Sink back into the velvet cushions of your boat as a skilled punter in traditional Edwardian attire gently glides you down the river. After your Punting experience, you will walk to the Christchurch Botanic Gardens, and join an electric open-sided shuttle that will take you on a narrated tour through the Christchurch Botanic Gardens. Admire these wonderfully impressive gardens with their mixture of seasonal colours and array of plant life. You will have the opportunity to view some of the best examples of native and exotic flora in New Zealand.
