From here you can enjoy the kaleidoscope of colours that are the Canterbury Plains. But there is more to Rolleston than meets the eye. With its ever expanding population and housing boom, this truly is the ‘town of the future’.
Perfectly located alongside State Highway 1, just 22 kilometres south-west of Christchurch, it’s not surprising Rolleston has become a an incredibly popular place to live..
With plenty of options for coffee, lunch and takeaways, Rolleston is also home to major retail chain stores alongside boutique retail outlets.
Rolleston is the largest town in the Selwyn District with two supermarkets, a medical centre, pharmacies, other health care providers, primary and secondary schools and early childhood education centres.
The community centre and library have a huge range of community activities and many clubs base themselves here. The newly developed Foster Park provides an amazing playground as well as sports fields which come alive on a Saturday morning.
