Garden City

Recovering from the earthquakes of 2010 and 2011 was no easy task, but Christchurch has faced the challenges with aplomb. Employing wit, humor, and a modern perspective, the "Garden City" has reformed itself into a cultural center of the country, placing great emphasis on sustainability and eco-friendly development. Your tour of Christchurch will yield its traditional character as well, with vast gardens, peaceful rivers, and gorgeous views of the coast. A vibrant city filled with pop-up bars and restaurants, wildlife parks, and sports activities, Christchurch has retained its elegance and added a contemporary flair. Our New Zealand holiday planner allows you to plan your trip to Christchurch and a wealth of other destinations big and small.

Offering an extensive range of hotels, hostels, motels with kitchens, and campsites, Christchurch makes a great place to set up camp as you explore the city and beyond. The greatest diversity of accommodations clusters in the city center next to North and South Hagley parks.
