Guided walks to showcase Te Papa Ōtākaro/Avon River Precinct
Christchurch’s evolving Te Papa Ōtākaro/Avon River Precinct will be showcased in free guided walks to celebrate World Rivers Day.
Walk by the River will be hosted by the project team behind the Precinct on Sunday, September 28, and will be a feature of the nine-day The Breeze Walking Festival.
Te Papa Ōtākaro/Avon River Precinct is an anchor project in the Christchurch Central Recovery Plan and is in response to the public’s call for the river to be more of a feature of central Christchurch. It includes a programme of revitalisation of the river and its surrounds to bring back wildlife and the public.
The guided river walks, lasting about an hour, depart on the hour from 10am to 2pm at the Antigua Boat Sheds, or people can pick up a map for a self-guided walk. Those that complete a “riverside quiz” will also be in a draw to win a family prize package.
For more information on the walks visit the Future Christchurch or Christchurch City Council websites. More on Te Papa Ōtākaro /Avon River Precinct Avon River Precinct can be found at
