Its close proximity to the CBD coupled with a rural outlook makes the subdivision an ideal place to build your new home, Karamū Riccarton Park.

Karamū, Riccarton Park is located in Upper Riccarton, Christchurch. Selected for the bounty that surrounds it; the richness of its history and the potential of its future. Karamū is the start of something exciting.

Karamū is ideally located close to the CBD, and still has the luxury of a rural outlook. It is perfectly located for quick access to the Canterbury ski fields, as well as giving you easy access to motorways taking you across the South Island. Or, if the rest of the world is calling you, Karamū is just a short journey from Christchurch International Airport making access easy for short or long trips away.  

The History of Karamū

The Riccarton Racecourse area was once home to the trees, shrubs, and birds that the local Māori (Ngāi Tūāhuriri) used and protected. For birds, the area was an easy flight to Pūtarikamotu (Riccarton Bush) with its awe-inspiring ancient kahikatea, tōtara and mātai trees.

The development is named after the Karamū tree whose bright berries are a signal that harvest time is here. A favourite with native birds including tui and korimako (bellbirds), it is also beloved by gardeners.
