It has been a while but it is an area that is tarting to get its mojo back. Seems busier every year we visit.

Cashel street is a giant construction zone since the earthquake.About half the building have been rebuilt and the rest should be finished soon.It still has some nice shops etc to visit and the Newstart Mall is a must see.Event though there is a lot of construction going on this place is still worth a visit

This area was developed in response to damage done by the 2010 quakes, but it has grown to be a great retail area and tourist attraction. It was fresh and quirky. Nice for shopping, snacks, etc.

Cashel Street is a fun and vibrant place to visit. With a great selection of shops including Ballentynes and the RE:Start mall it is easy to find just about anything you need. The food stalls at RE:Start are varied and you are close to the Avon River and a number of tram stops.

Every time I visit this street, I love it. There is a good range of shops here, including the Restart Mall which has been made from shipping containers. There is also a great food court area here with lots of choices. There is always something going on in this street, with buskers, other entertainment, tourists and an all-round good vibe.... More

Imaginative and Creative. The earthquakes caused so much damage but some clever, forward thinking people came up with the idea of using empty sea containers as shops and restaurants. Well worth a look at.

Nice litle block for tourists, reasonable food and easy to find. Parking can be difficult but trams stop there so parking near any tram stop can alleviate this. Big range of food options and spaces to sit and eat. Souvenir shopping choices are diverse and reasonably priced. Bit quiet, which can be nice but lacks that buzz ... Worth a... More
