About Christchurch

Known as New Zealand's Garden City, Christchurch is regarded as the most British of all New Zealand cities. From the winding Avon River, Christchurch skips to its own unique tune, and does so in style. Take a short drive from the city centre to the beaches at Brighton or just enjoy a fine selection of local fare or visit the Re:Start Mall. Christchurch is the perfect base for a skiing trip to Mt Hutt or to catch the Trans-alpine express for the train journey of a lifetime.
