    There are lots of sports you can do around Christchurch, but we weren't after anything too adventurous. Canoeing was ideal for us, because it was in the city.

    Equipment: Nothing required (not even lifejackets, since the water is little over 30 - 40 cms deep!)

    These boat cheds were built in 1882 by two boat builders. The building today as it stands is one of the oldest buildings in Christchurch and among the only one used for its' original purpose.
    You can hire a paddle boats, canoes or row boats and enjoy the views going along the Avon River.
