Recovering from the earthquakes of 2010 and 2011 was no easy task, but Christchurch has faced the challenges with aplomb.
Geraldine Observatory and Canterbury Museum will appeal to museum buffs. Get some historical perspective at Port Hills and Saint Peter's Anglican Church. Get out of town with these interesting Christchurch side-trips: Washpen Falls (in Darfield), Geraldine Vintage Car and Machinery Museum (in Geraldine) and Rakaia (Rakaia Gorge Walkway & Rakaia Salmon Statue). On the 19th (Sat), dedicate a day to the elevated beauty of Mt Hutt Ski Area. Spend the 17th (Thu) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. The adventure continues: look for all kinds of wild species at Hinewai Reserve, learn about all things military at Ashburton Aviation Museum, examine the collection at International Antarctic Centre, and stroll around Riccarton House & Bush.

Expect a daytime high around °C in September, and nighttime lows around °C.
