The quaint, English-style wooden boat sheds on the banks of the Avon River (Otakaro) are a reminder of yesteryear. Built in 1882 by two boat builders, the distinctive green-and-white striped, rustic boat sheds continue to launch vessels onto the water, although the clientele today are more likely to be novice canoeists. At Antigua Boatsheds, you can hire a punt or boat to head upstream to the Botanic Gardens, or watch the flotilla from the popular cafe, which serves breakfast and brunch from 7a daily. Caters for cocktail parties and children's birthdays. Check website for further details.
