Visited on Tuesday 22nd May. What a great structure sitting proudly in the centre of Christchurch. While walking around we passed this way a few times during the day.

We were just amazed at the amount of building required in Christchurch since the last big earthquake. Everywhere you go there are remnants of buildings that have been destroyed and a lot being rebuilt. Beautiful new buildings which, no doubt in time, will make Christchurch...More

Great memorial to the soldiers that gave their lives defending the freedoms and liberties of New Zealanders whilst also serving a practical usage as a pedestrian foot bridge to cross the river.

No cars are allowed on the bridge and seems unaffected by the earthquake. On the map it is in the wrong place place.

In the city center, it is a small pedestrian bridge to the main shopping district. It commemorates the people who fought in the wars.

Easy to come across if you're walking around Christchurch, or taking the tram trip. All memorials serve a purpose; in this case remembering the sacrifices made by Kiwis in various wars. The Bridge of Remembrance does this, but it is not really special.

We were only passing but stopped to have a look at all the flowers and messages left on Anzac Day. A moving reminder of all the lives lost at war. Lovely park area to sit and stroll or sit with a picnic on a nice...More
