I see others have answered the question, I sure hope you visit the Giants House, it is one-of-a-kind. I was in NZ for two months without a car, there are some great bus services and other ways to travel. Akaroa is a great walking town.

Yes, there is a bus service from Christchurch centre and once in Akaroa it's a short walk to the house.

I was there on a cruise ship and we walked from the wharf, was a good walk. But well worth it.

Vicky, Akora is 75 km from Christchurch. If you can take a bus from Christchurch to Akora, you can walk anywhere in the town -- including the garden -- very easily.

Hi Vicky, It would be a shame to miss out on this great attraction because you don't drive so take Josie's advice and book a shuttle bus from Christchurch.

Enjoy Akaroa, it is very beautiful.

Regards,

Joy
