Things To Do

Explore Canterbury

In glorious Canterbury you'll find many different worlds in the one region. From stunning coastlines to snow-capped mountain ranges, with grassy plains and clear lakes in between. Canterbury has action and adventure, breath-taking scenery and deep relaxation - something for every traveller.

Visit New Zealand’s Garden City, Christchurch, for a stroll along the Avon River and wander through sprawling Hagley Park - it’s especially gorgeous at the moment with all the spring blooms. Christchurch  is the ideal place to base yourself to explore the surrounding area, but is also a vibrant and interesting city in its own right that prides itself on transformation and innovation. Wander the city centre and indulge in the exciting bar and restaurant scene, head out to the beaches at Brighton, or hire a bike and cruise some of the city’s excellent cycle trails.

Stunning Kaikōura is a hit with all visitors - the combination of beautiful scenery and exciting adventures is a winner. Famous for its amazing marine wildlife, you can spot not only whales but seals, dolphins and albatrosses too! Keen fishers can join a fishing charter and pull up something fresh for dinner, or for more relaxed ocean fun, kayak your way around the ruggedly beautiful coast.

When visiting Canterbury you can stay with Heritage at Heritage Collection The White Morph in Kaikoura or Heritage Christchurch.
