Murray Aynsley Hill is a hillside suburb of Christchurch, New Zealand, located on the fringes of the Port Hills 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) south-east of the city centre. Situated above the suburb was Glenelg Children's Health Camp;[1] the school for children with behavioural problems was closed by the Minister of Education, Anne Tolley, in January 2012.[2] The suburb is named after early Christchurch settler Hugh Murray-Aynsley.[3] The first owner of the land was Colonel Alexander Lean.[4]
