Family Fun at Ferrymead Heritage Park
Experience life in Christchurch as it was in the colonial era! The earthquakes of late 2010 and early 2011 may have damaged many of the heritage in the city of Christchurch, but you can still experience life in days gone by with a visit for Ferrymead Heritage Park.
The Park is located in an area of huge historical significance; it built on the site of New Zealand’s first public railway.
The Moorhouse Township at Ferrymead Heritage Park is a recreation of life in 1920s Christchurch and features Edwardian replica heritage houses, as well as a church, general store, jail, blacksmith and railway station.
Ferrymead Heritage Park is also home to a significant collection of heritage transport and technology and, during weekends, visitors can ride on an electric tram.
