hristchurch was built on a swamp. Travis Wetland is the largest freshwater wetland remnant on the Canterbury Plains. The wetland is inhabited by increasing numbers of wildlife including pukeko, scaup, pied stilt and paradise duck. There is a walking track around the wetland perimeter including boardwalks and a viewing tower and bird hide to watch wading birds. The Information Kiosk (designer: Peter Kent), and the Bird Hide (Crispin Schurr) are not without architectural merit. - You can get here on the no 60 (Parklands) bus.
