There's a bus that goes there at the beginning of the walks. The walks are very nice and we can pass many hours there. I went to the "Sign of the kiwi" and from there I followed the track along the Crater Rim Walkway from where we have good views of Lyttelton Harbour and the city of Christchurch.

For the best views of Christchurch go up to Victoria Park Walk along the track to The Sign of the Kiwi for a cup of coffee. There is a good playground for the children. Take a picnic and sit and look at the spectacular view.

Great place for a family picnic, and kid friendly as there's a playground and long slide. The walks are beautiful, as are the views. There's also a dog park, so it's pretty much perfect for anyone

A short walk from the last bus stop up Cashmere Hill, is Victoria Park, with its grand view of Ch-ch and its walks, one dedicated to Harry Ell, the chap who opened up the hills to the people of Ch-ch.

Great for mountain biking and walking. MTB trails are rated intermediate and up, but aren't as intimidating as they look! You get a good view of the city if you go through the woods.

Great place to come and have a picnic/fish and chips with mates in the wood huts. Beautiful setting during sunset and amazing view of Christchurch. Gets a bit chilly during evening though.

Of the city , especially at night when it's dark . Make sure you 'wrap up' with a coat though as it can get really cold up here in the winter !

Nice view but nothing was open, except the playground. The buildings there look abandoned and derelict.
