Here’s our pick of the best walks in Christchurch

Just because the earthquakes destroyed so much of Christchurch, it doesn’t mean that there isn’t still plenty to see and do in the city. In fact, we’ve been out walking around and have documented all the details of our hiking right here. So whether you’re from Christchurch or just visiting, make sure you check out our walks chch for some great ideas.

There’s no need to leave the city to enjoy a great walk – Christchurch has some excellent options right in its centre. The Avon River walk provides a lovely stroll, while Hagley Park is perfect for a longer trek. Both offer beautiful views of the landscape and plenty of chances to take in the fresh air. So if you’re looking for an easy way to get some exercise, or just want to spend a relaxing day out walking, Christchurch has you covered. Just be sure to bring your camera – these are some scenic spots you won’t want to miss!
