4.4/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web
For an eco-friendly way to sightsee around the city, explore Avon River on a punting tour. Cruising on old-fashioned punts--flat-bottomed wooden boats--remains one of Christchurch's favorite activities and an easy way to discover this major waterway meandering through the center of the city. Punting on the river takes you along tree-lined banks and through the leafy landscapes of the city's botanic garden. If you prefer to sightsee on foot, walk through Christchurch's riverside neighborhoods to discover cozy alfresco cafes, quiet sitting areas, and lively promenades, ideal places for meeting friends and soaking up some local culture. Make Avon River a centerpiece of your Christchurch vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Christchurch trip itinerary planner.

  • 如果沒有這條雅芳河基督城就不會被稱為英國之外最英國的城市了,地震造成商業活動減少了許多,但是,反而讓這個城市的觀光情形不再那麼濃厚!河上偶爾可以看到有人乘坐划艇撐篙,蠻特殊的感覺!
