Hillsborough is a southern suburb of Christchurch, New Zealand.
The area was first owned by Edward Garland, who called it Broomfield Farm. Garland grazed cattle on the low-lying land south of the Heathcote River, and sheep on the slopes of the Port Hills. The farm was later renamed Hillsborough. Much of the land on the flat is now zoned industrial. Garlands Road is named for Edward Garland.
There used to be many brickworks in Hillsborough at the bottom of the Port Hills.
