Ashburton is just one hours drive south of Christchurch International Airport. As the largest town in Mid Canterbury, Ashburton is the hub of the district with a friendly rural feel and flavour. There are 2 main streets running parallel from north to south. Split by the railway line, they are aptly named East and West Streets. Wills Street runs off East Street between Walnut and Ave and Moore Street. You can't miss the Event Centre just a few hundred metres up on your left.
