The Avon River (Otakaro) flows from its source in the western suburbs of Christchurch and through the central city, making it a focal point for recreation. Leaving the central city, the Avon flows west and out to the Avon Heathcote Estuary. A popular destination with locals and tourists alike, you can walk along the Avon’s banks, relax in Hagley Park or the Botanic Gardens with a view of the river, or go on an English-style punt boat.

South Island Road Trip Delights: Custom Multi Day 14D : 13N

South Island Road Trip Delights: Custom Multi Day 14D : 13N

The linking of special short road trips allows you to relax and take in more of the uniqueness of New Zealand. Having existing planned routes by a born local who understands that having custom options that can be tweaked to suit rather than a set plan creates a more flexible holiday. The hot spots of New Zealand can then be interspersed with out of the way places that you may never have heard of or knew existed. New Zealand is a place of wonder and every hour the scenery changes to something more spectacular. Queenstown is a great stopping spot with so much to do and flying home is easy.
