Christchurch is the inspiring, buzzing 'Garden City', and the gateway to New Zealand's South Island.
If you're looking for a quirky and inspiring place, Christchurch will not disappoint.
After recovering from a devastating earthquake, the city is being rebuilt from scratch. There are gems waiting for you around every corner. One remarkable landmark is the Cardboard Cathedral, a “transitional” church that was built after the original Anglican cathedral was damaged. Explore amazing street art, innovative projects, and a booming hospitality scene. For a great day trip, cruise into Akaroa Harbour, which features coastal vistas, fishing opportunities and cuisine with French flair.
