Welcome Aboard: Punting on Avon

Punting on the beautiful Avon River is an iconic Christchurch attraction not to be missed.

Welcome Aboard: Punting on Avon

There are two locations for Punting on the Avon - The Antigua Boatsheds Landing and the Worcester Street Bridge Landing.

Come aboard a classic punt at the historic Antigua Boatsheds Landing and an Edwardian punter will guide you quietly past trailing willows, woodlands, and leafy banks as you absorb the beauty of Christchurch’s Botanic Gardens.

At the Worcester Street Bridge Landing come aboard for a fascinating ride through the Christchurch Red Zone, and see the changing face of the city centre.

Each Punting tour is 30 minutes duration with informative commentary and you are returned back to the point of departure.

Choose from the Park Landing Site at the Antigua Boat Sheds or the City Landing Site, Worcester Street Bridge.
