Seasonal Must Dos Spring Must Dos in Christchurch

Daffodils are blooming, cherry blossoms are flowering and ducklings are swimming… it is Spring and it's starting to warm up so you can finally break out that pretty sundress (or for you guys rock the shorts again!).   

With so much happiness around, here are our Spring “Must Do’s” in the city to get outside and enjoy what the city has to offer.

Get in touch with nature

Go on flower filled walks, or visit the beautiful Botanic Gardens. Just make sure to admire all those beautiful spring blooms while you can because they won't be in full bloom again until next year!

Punt away

This is the perfect time of year to grab a friend and head down the Avon on a traditional punt! With the gardens filled with flower – there is nothing quite like relaxing and taking in the view while someone else does all the hard work.

Pet the animals

All those animal mad kids will love Arion Farm! It is a great spot to pet and feed lots of different animals – plus  you can bring a picnic to make a day of it.

Play a Round of Golf 

Time for those casual golfers to pull their clubs out of the wardrobe and dust them off. Spring brings with it ideal golfing weather, clear days and moderate temperatures.
