Dallington is a suburb of Christchurch, New Zealand, on the north-east side of the city.

It is bounded mainly by the Avon river, stretching in a circular area from the intersection of Gayhurst Road, Dallington Terrace and Locksley Avenue along to New Brighton Road, North Parade and Banks Avenue where it meets the intersection at the other end of Dallington Terrace and River Road. Its neighbouring suburbs are Burwood, Shirley, Richmond, and Avonside.

It is home to a petrol station, an automechanic workshop, a garden supplies centre, charitable organisation Trade Aid's head office, a hairdressing salon, three dairies, a haberdashery store, a "fish & chips" takeaway, a medical centre, two primary schools, Banks Avenue School and St. Paul's School, (a Roman Catholic school), with three high schools - Shirley Boys' High, Marian College and Avonside Girls' High close by, in neighbouring suburbs.

The "Orbiter" bus service, the city council's suburban-based and circular service which runs every 10 minutes during weekdays and 15-30 mins apart during weekends and also connects with city-suburb buses is a major plus for the suburb.

Coordinates: 43°30′49″S 172°40′26″E / 43.5136°S 172.6740°E / -43.5136; 172.6740

On September 4th, 2010, it was severely hit by a 7.1 magnitude earthquake, causing immense damage. Consequently, the St Paul's parish church and school which had suffered greatly from the effects of the quake, were forced to relocate their church services to the Marian College chapel and the students to Catholic Cathedral College, for the following couple of years estimated that it would take to rebuild.
