Christchurch - The Garden City

Following the 2010-2011 earthquakes, Christchurch has re-emerged as a vibrant, ever-changing city; a true example of good-as-gold Kiwi resilience and some very creative residents.  It’s an exciting time to visit the city and see some bold and visionary initiatives working alongside some of the more traditional Christchurch attractions we all know and love.  Enjoy a good vibe, shopping and food carts at Re:START – a shopping area made with bright shipping containers, enjoy a punt on the Avon, explore the Christchurch Botanic Gardens or explore the Banks Peninsula … Christchurch has plenty to keep you busy.
