Rolleston, where the Midland railway line to the West Coast separates off from the main trunk line!
Due to its rapid development as a satellite town of Christchurch, Rolleston is a vibrant and exciting community - sections here now have a considerably higher value than the £3 per acre for which they were sold in 1850!
Rolleston's nearness to Christchurch allows residents to enjoy a well-serviced village lifestyle, close to the city.
