The hubby and I flew from Queenstown to Christchurch and had a few hours to kill before we drove to Kaikoura. My brother used to live here and recommended the Botanic Gardens. Absolutely gorgeous!!! I have been to a few gardens in various cities and countries and this is one of my favorites! We had a lovely, quiet, calm and romantic stroll around the beautiful park. The rose garden was the highlight (and I don't even care for roses). We saw so many different varieties and colors and the smell was wonderful!
There were tons of trees that I would have climbed if I were a kid! I wish we had more time... great spot for a picnic and an afternoon spent reading a book under the trees.
So, if you are looking for some activity in Christchurch and only have a few hours... please go to the botanic gardens - you will not regret it!
