The memorial is about five minutes’ walk up the Ōtākaro/Avon River from the retail area of Cashel Mall or the Bridge of Remembrance.

The south bank area with the memorial wall can be accessed down a ramp at the eastern or city end, and by steps at the western end. It is accessible 24-hours a day.

From the Bus Interchange, Christchurch’s main bus terminal, the Memorial is two blocks’ walk west along Lichfield Street and Oxford Terrace.


Car parking

A mobility carpark will eventually be available near the memorial south bank ramp in Oxford Terrace. In addition to street parking, carpark buildings are located in Cashel Street (opening in March 2017) and adjacent to the Bus Interchange in Lichfield Street.
