Burwood is a north-eastern suburb of Christchurch, New Zealand. The suburb is mostly a residential area and is centred on Burwood Hospital, Travis Wetland Nature Heritage Park and Bottle Lake Forest (a 31-acre (130,000 m2) recreation, forested area). Recently, the local iwi, Ngai Tahu, created a new subdivision in the area, naming it 'Tumara Park'.

Burwood contains two schools: Burwood Primary School and Windsor School.
