Christchurch Botanic Gardens Tour Christchurch
Christchurch Botanic Gardens Tour
This spectacular garden tour through Christchurch Botanic gardens will leave you breathless and in awe of nature’s beauty. The informative and fully guided shuttle tour over the course of one hour will give you a journey through 75 acres of New Zealand’s most exotic and gorgeous native plants.
The Botanic Gardens were established in 1863 and hold host to New Zealand’s most eclectic range of plants. The excellent location of the Gardens allows visitors to discover the natural beauty and history of the gardens; all while being surrounded by one of New Zealand’s central cities.
Known as The Caterpillar Garden Tour – due to the way you coast over flowing trails in an electric-powered shuttle – the charming vehicle moves over the concrete path like its namesake, the caterpillar. Although the Botanic Gardens Tour is fully guided and the knowledge of the employees about their flora and fauna is second to none, you a welcome to leave and explore the gardens at any of the allocated check points.
Whether you would like to compare the Sub-Antarctic Daisies, or appreciate the Circular Rose garden which flourishes in this setting – or even crush a leaf between your fingers and take in the aroma nature has on offer – Christchurch’s Botanic Gardens has everything you desire out of nature.
You will also have the opportunity to see New Zealand’s only World Peace Bell; do not forget your camera, as the occasion definitely beckons a happy trigger finger. Enjoy the Caterpillar Garden Tour at the Christchurch Botanical Gardens any season of the year, and relax and unwind within the midst of nature’s fascinating beauty.

I got onto a website and a chat box popped up and the man who helped me was very good. It was so easy to book. I printed it out and I happened to ring the day before to confirm and the lady Chloe I spoke to said that they didn't go to Pullman Reef casino Hotel and we should go to Pullman international across the road. I am glad I rang as we wouldn't have known that. That was the only hiccup otherwise it was a seamless process.
Product rating: excellent
Very good half day tour from 1145 hotel pickup and dropped back at hotel at 530pm, had about 100 mins in Kuranda which was plenty as not much to do there. We had lunch there a drink at the pub and a quick look around the market. The skyrail was amazing , try to get a seat on the right side of the train on the way back as otherwise you don't see much. upgrade to gold class if you can
