The Rolleston Statue is a white marble statue situated outside Canterbury Museum on Rolleston Avenue in Christchurch, New Zealand. It commemorates William Rolleston, the superintendent of the Canterbury Province from 1868 until 1877. The statue was unveiled on May 26, 1906, by Mayor of Christchurch Sir John Hall KCMG, a personal friend, who wrote, “City Council arrived in carriages to Statue.” The Rolleston Statue fell off its plinth in the 2011 Christchurch earthquake but was repaired in 2016.
