Upcycling Christchurch

posted in: Blog | 0

Here’s what DIY looks like when it’s done right: punting on the Avon! A great way to explore river Avon and the beautiful Christchurch Botanical Park.

 

 

 

 

 

It’s eco-friendly, incredibly romantic, and very atmospheric.

 

 

Olde-world style: there’s even a punter with a bowler hat and everything.

 

 

 

Gorgeous, up-cycled mid-century trams. They take you on a slow-paced tour of the city centre.

 

 

New Regent Street with its beautifully preserved Spanish Mission architecture, now houses upscale boutique stores.

 

 

 

 

No entry unless you’re on legs or a tram!

 

 

 

Gorgeous old beauties get a new lease of life.

 

 

Doubling up as a stunning art deco theatre.

 

 

 

Here’s a repurposed washing machine:

 

 

It’s a repurposed washing machine joke-box in a repurposed, dis-used parking lot.

 

 

Complete with a dance floor.

 

 

A groovy playlist, and kick-ass speakers.

 

 

Good job, Christchurch! Keep it rolling,
