Riccarton Bush, Christchurch City

My favourite part of Christchurch and very close to the University. Why couldn't it have all been like this? Cabbage trees grow in the last remnant of Kahikatea forest in Christchurch. Sadly this stand will probably die out since the surrounding town has drained the swampy land and Kahikateas love swampy ground.
