Local Area

Christchurch in the Canterbury region of South Island, New Zealand, is an ever-evolving city that shines bright with possibilities. Cutting-edge architecture rubs shoulders with some of the oldest buildings in New Zealand. There’s a similar contrast between the natural Avon River crisscrossing through the heart of the city’s sleek urban landscape. A restored heritage tram will whisk you around the city in style. Stop by the Botanic Gardens, home to some of the most exotic plants in New Zealand. The Rose Garden is a crowd favourite, boasting 150 different varieties of colourful and fragrant roses. Then enjoy a leisurely punt down the Avon River, followed by some finger-licking local bites at the Riverside Market. The surrounding Canterbury area is filled to the brim with once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Luxuriate in thermal Hanmer Springs, or become acquainted with Kaikōura’s seals, whales and dolphins. Fancy exploring the rest of South Island? Christchurch will provide a central base. The striking Banks Peninsula, the Southern Alps and the awe-inspiring Canterbury Plains are all within easy reach.
