Christchurch in detail

It’s getting easier and easier to travel to even the most far-flung regions of the country, and although it may seem miles and miles from home, New Zealand is well worth the visit – and one of the most beautiful places on Earth.

Christchurch in particular is one of the most popular in the country; settled along one side of the South Island, its beautiful setting attracts more and more tourists every year. With over 7% of the city’s residents considering themselves Maori by ethnicity, this – albeit young – region is rich with history and culture. Whatever sort of holidaymaker you consider yourself, Christchurch will undoubtedly have activities and attractions to suit you.

Widely nicknamed ‘The City in the Garden’, lots of work has been completed recently to adorn even the most densely populated or industrialised suburbs with well tended parks and gardens, bringing a little bit of New Zealand’s gorgeous green landscape to the city. That leaves you only one thing to do: get out there and enjoy.
