Destination Christchurch

Christchurch, the third largest city in New Zealand, is located on the east coast of country’s South Island. City has predominantly English heritage with elements of indigenous, Maori culture. Main city areas include Cathedral Square, where many city’s landmarks are located, together with ‘Cardboard Cathedral’, Hagley Park, with expansive green area and Avon River and Willowbank Wildlife Reserve and Orana Wildlife Park.

Popular city day tours include visit to farms and vineyards and climbing with cable car to Mt. Cavendish for panoramic city views. Christchurch has many preserved areas to remind visitors of past time, such as authentic tram ride through city center and Ferrymead Heritage Park with buildings from 1900s. During summer time, city activities shift to the coast where several sandy beaches are popular with families and holiday makers.
