This is a lovely wetland area and on a nice day it's s brilliant place to wander in the sun and watch the birds while getting some exercise. We had to shoo a fair few cats away. Collars with bells owners please!

Driving past in the evening with the Southern Alps as a backdrop gives a great sense of what Canterbury would have been like before Christchurch arrived - swamp, cabbage trees and flax. I like Ch-ch for its historic feel, both native and English. Pity that...More

At one point this whole wetland was going to be made into a housing estate (Travis Country was once also a wetland), by saved by some Cantabrians with foresight.

We took our kids and their cousins along the wetlands walkway and thoroughly enjoyed it. The track is wide enough for the kids to run ahead, but if you take your time there's lots to see, including Pukekos and eels.
