A beautiful Victorian home with lush gardens
Avebury House is set within Avebury Park, an English-style garden setting with expansive lawns and large deciduous trees. The grounds also includes a popular children's playground and a paddling pool.
Built as the Flesher family homestead in 1882, the heritage house was refurbished by the Christchurch City Council in 1999 after many years as the Cora Wilding Youth Hostel. It is now a perfect venue for workshops, events and other special celebrations, as well as a hub for local community groups and classes.
Avebury House can be hired for the day or part thereof. You can hire the whole house, or as many individual rooms you require. The house is managed by the Avebury House Community Trust for the community to enjoy.
The Richmond Room is open daily for visitors to learn more about Avebury House's history and its surrounding gardens.
