Overview

Punting on the beautiful Avon River is an iconic Christchurch attraction not to be missed. Summer or winter, glide along the tranquil Avon River in Christchurch as a skilled punter in traditional Edwardian attire propels you slowly along the water.

A must-do while in Christchurch, your tour on the Avon River is set aboard a handcrafted flat-bottom boat. Take in the sights while the boat is propelled by your Edwardian-dressed punter from a platform at the rear of the boat. An ideal group outing or family activity, this is an eco-friendly way to relax and enjoy Christchurch from a different perspective.

From the departure point in the park, travel leisurely from the historic Antigua Boat sheds, by the Botanic Gardens, and enjoy the spectacular flora 'The Garden City’ is famous for.
