It's Spring In The City

Explore the City Blooms

Capture the bright yellow daffodils, cherry blossom trees and baby ducklings by a traditional punt or canoe down the Avon River. For the more active and those wanting to get back into shape for summer, explore the city by bike

Indulge in the Taste of Spring

Nothing beats sitting in the sun enjoying delicious ice cream. With new places popping up almost every day, it's easy to get your ice cream cravings sorted! Check out our favourites.

New Life & Cute Animals

Spring is about new life – not just in the gardens! Head to Arion Farm Park or Willowbank and see newborn lambs, pigs and bunnies running around. Spring is also the season when our national bird, the Kiwi, gets active and starts breeding.

Akaroa for the day?

How about a little roadtrip to Banks Peninsula? Pack a picnic basket, your togs and head over to Akaroa.

After something more spectacular? Take a scenic helicopter flight over Banks Peninsula to capture the beautiful volcanic scenery from above.
