Here we see where the first settlers arrived and we begin to appreciate the hardships they faced travelling over this 500m mountain between the harbour and the new town of Christchurch.  

River Studies 
From display maps you see
how the nearby river formed the land and now holds the city to ransom.   Interested groups can learn how the river is being managed to prevent it from its inevitable return to flood the city of Christchurch .
