The Edmonds Band Rotunda was donated to Christchurch by Thomas Edmonds and was opened on 11 Nov. 1929. It is the location of many events including a few free concerts and was converted to a restaurant in 1989. In the late 1980's it was a very chic place to go for lunch serving very nice french cuisine. Currently it is listed as Retour Restaurant and still serves french style food. Very well rated too!
The Rotunda is located near the corner of Manchester St & Cambridge Tce and looks over the Avon River near the middle of town.
Favorite thing: There are many nice cafes & restaurants in Christchurch, especially along the Avon River and at the City Centre. They cater for a variety of tastes e.g. Western, Chinese, Japanese, Italian etc.
Fondest memory: How else can we enjoy the sun but to take a quick snooze by the park? Sneaked this pic nearby the Scott statue ..
Marble sculptured statue of Captain James Cook set on granite base. Commemorates his three voyages around New Zealand, two bronze plaques are set into the base.
Set in Victoria Square
Favorite thing: If you are in ChCh, without fail you can see a group of people around the chess square...it's only open during certain hours but quite interesting to watch...
We were lucky to catch sight of the tram, as it made its way towards the Avon River.
Another english-style sight of the city.
Favorite thing: The Avon River runs through the center of Christchurch. It is fun to hire a punt and take a tour down the river.
Favorite thing: This picture is of a beautiful section of the Avon River in Christchurch. The picture was taken from the punt.
