Recovering from the earthquakes of 2010 and 2011 was no easy task, but Christchurch has faced the challenges with aplomb.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Christchurch: Little River Gallery (in Little River), Akaroa (The Garden at French Farm, The Giants House, &more) and Smithfield Berries (in Ashburton). There's much more to do: catch a ride on TranzAlpine Train, see the interesting displays at Quake City, pause for some serene contemplation at Cardboard Cathedral, and enjoy breathtaking views from Christchurch Gondola.
