Crusading Christchurch

After the devastating earthquakes that hit Christchurch in September 2010 and February 2011, the New Zealand city was quite literally shaken. Its confidence, landmarks and spirit all took a hit, but while the aftershocks continue and the repair efforts are still in progress, Christchurch is a city more determined than ever to show you its beauty. ... Read more »

The once-grand Christchurch Anglican Cathedralnow serves a sadder historical purpose, although its pre-earthquake history remains fascinating. The nearby Avon Riverwith its quaint punts floating by is a nod to the city’s strong British roots, while Lichfield Street with its boutiques and cafés is a gaze forward to a funkier, trendier Christchurch that is shedding its conservative roots.

Just outside the city, the rubble gives way to lush greenery and breathtaking natural beauty, and it’s possible to forget – for at least a while – that tragedy occurred here.

Christchurch’s Top 10

10. Mona Vale Set outside the city, this elegant country manor is a step back in time to a more genteel era.

5. Canterbury Museum This grand old museum has a rather one-sided focus on British Colonisation, but the Brits are nothing if not selective with their history…

9. Willowbank Wildlife Reserve Spot a kiwi at the largest viewing centre in NZ.

4. Punting on the Avon They say you can tell the difference between an Oxford boy and a Cambridge boy by the technique they use to punt. Check this place out to see how they punt in Christchurch!

8. Adrenalin Forest New Zealanders love to raise their adrenaline. Put your heart rate to the test in this obstacle course of extreme sports.

3. The Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament Although damaged in the earthquake and set to be partially demolished in the near future, it’s still worth a look.

7. Christchurch Botanic Gardens For a change of pace, immerse yourself in the English charm of these spectacular gardens.

2. Lake Pukaki Pinch yourself – yep, it really is that beautiful!

6. Pegasus Bay Winery A little way out of the city centre, the trek is worth it for the divine Sauv Blanc. Sniff, swill… don’t spit!

1. Waimairi Beach Heathcliff and Cathy would have been happy on this ruggedly beautiful stretch of sand.

While a lot has happened in the past few years to change the face of Christchurch, the Biennial Christchurch Arts Festival from August to October has more reasons than ever to celebrate the strength of the city.

Rugby is pretty much a religion in New Zealand. Catch a game while you’re in town – you’ll have plenty to choose from!

When To Go

  • Christchurch enjoys relatively mild winters and pleasant summers.
  • In winter (June-August), temperatures hover around 10ºC (50ºF) during the day, falling to freezing overnight.
  • Summer temperatures average around 22ºC (72ºF).

Much of the inner city is still strictly limited due to quake damage, so check your accommodation in relation to the damaged areas

The Christchurch Shuttle operates around parts of the city. It’s free and sustainable (a hybrid vehicle). Hooray!

For trips outside the city, renting a car is your best option. NZ is best viewed through a windscreen as you pass some of the most breathtaking attractions simply getting from A to B.
