Punting on the Avon

Punting on the Avon has been one of Christchurch’s iconic attractions since 1986. An Edwardian-dressed Punter will guide you quietly past trailing willows, woodlands and the leafy banks of the Botanic Gardens or through the rebuilding city centre of Christchurch on board a classic Punt.

Punting on the Avon offers 30 minute shared rides.
