Riccarton bush trust heritage: Riccarton House

Cantabrians have always loved their heritage, and the historic buildings left post-earthquakes are more precious than ever.

The care lavished by the Riccarton Bush Trust ensures this piece of living history is a gift to current and future generations.

The painting of Riccarton House has been completed and it looks spectacular.

Pūtaringamotu/Riccarton Bush is undergoing a major enhancement project.
A significant native forest, this pivotal piece of Christchurch’s ecology is the last portion of an irreplaceable link to the past.

It is exceptional for not just Waitaha/Canterbury, but all of Aotearoa.
Regular tours of the House include the Deans’ family stories.

Book online for this unique experience or gather your special group for discounted House, Garden or Bush tours, by emailing contact@riccartonhouse.co.nz.

Complete your visit by stopping by the beautiful restaurant or simply feed your soul with a stroll around the gardens and into the bush.

“For Cantabrians the House, gardens, and Bush are firmly embedded in our hearts,” says Trust Manager Shona Willis. “We love to see people enjoy it, and please get in touch if you would like to donate to enhance and conserve this special place.”
