Prebbleton Village, which has been in existence for over 140 years, is one of the earliest settlements on the Canterbury Plains. The fertile land surrounding the village was farmed to grow arable crops and feed dairy cows.
Although now surrounded by orchards, olive groves, race-horse stables and intensive horticulture, Prebbleton retains the traditional village character just 10 minutes from the facilities of Christchurch.
The village, which is regularly served by public transport, has extensive sporting and community facilities, is close to Lincoln University and high schools, and has its own primary school and early childhood centres.
