Parking in Christchurch CBD

Convenient casual and long term parking in Christchurch CBD with the Parkable app

Christchurch, otherwise known as the Garden City, is located on the East Coast of New Zealand’s South Island. Hagley Park and the Christchurch Botanic Gardens provide a focal point to the city and create a recreational haven. As well as visiting the parks, you can take an iconic Christchurch punting tour on the Avon River, starting out from the Antigua boat sheds to explore Christchurch’s sites and history. Walkers and cyclists can follow the numerous river paths adding to the vibe of Garden City.

The 2011 earthquake wreaked havoc on some of the beautiful stone gothic buildings, including the landmark Christchurch cathedral. However, Christchurch is now revitalised, with some restoration and new contemporary architecture on show, and the dining and restaurant scene is quickly becoming one of the most innovative in the country.

The Riverside Market is the ultimate boutique shopping experience, including an indoor market that sources local produce 7 days a week, plus restaurants, bars, cafes, and retail stores. St Asaph Street boasts the Little High Eatery, also not to be missed - it's a trendy and upmarket food court serving dishes from all over the world.
