What people are saying:

We lost my family in the earthquake, and this pain made us cry. The monument was built to pay tribute to those who died in the earthquake. A white wall with the names of victims of the 2011 earthquake, which should have included people from different countries, is a small river next to it, the atmosphere is very peaceful, suitable for people to reflect and hang.

    Beautiful memorial

    Definitely worth a visit to the Earthquake memorial on the banks of the river Avon. I personally would have liked some information as to where the deaths took place.

    A solemn place

    First time down this walk of remembrance, which we found quite sobering as we viewed the dozens of names inscribed in the granite walls. A fitting reminded of a devastating past.
