Plan your visit to the Botanic Gardens

Kia ora and welcome to the Christchurch Botanic Gardens. Located just 15 minutes from the city centre, the Christchurch Botanic Gardens is at the heart of the city's reputation as the Garden City.

Our impressive collection of plants provides a tranquil oasis. From the spring drifts of daffodils, spectacular summer roses and herbaceous border, stunning autumn leaf display and cosy conservatories to warm up in over winter, there's something to delight in every season.

The New Zealand Garden also offers an accessible glimpse into the country’s unique wilderness to lose yourself in throughout the year.

We host several fun events at the Christchurch Botanic Gardens, especially throughout the summer months and school holidays with live music and discovery trails. Check our What’s On pages to help plan your visit.

Entrance to the Botanic Gardens is free and with over a million visitors a year, we are a must-see Christchurch attraction. Add us to your itinerary.
