Victoria Square Review
This square was named for Queen Victoria in her jubilee year. On its north side sits the damaged Town Hall, which is undergoing a four-year conservation project and will eventually become part of Christchurch's new (at time of writing, yet-to-be-built) Performing Arts Precinct. Nearby stands a poupou, a tall, carved, wood column, acknowledging the site's history as a trading point between Māori and the European settlers. You'll also see Christchurch's oldest iron bridge, a floral clock, two fountains, and statues of Queen Victoria and Captain Cook.
