Christchurch

— 13 nights

Garden City

Recovering from the earthquakes of 2010 and 2011 was no easy task, but Christchurch has faced the challenges with aplomb.
Venture out of the city with trips to Akaroa (French Peak Wines, The Giants House, &more), Geraldine Observatory (in Geraldine) and The Plains Vintage Railway & Historical Museum (in Ashburton). On the 3rd (Thu), spend the day riding on TranzAlpine Train. There's still lots to do: admire the natural beauty at Christchurch Botanic Gardens, take an in-depth tour of Canterbury Museum, examine the collection at Quake City, and make a trip to Cardboard Cathedral.

For maps, reviews, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Christchurch road trip tool.

Melbourne, Australia to Christchurch is an approximately 6.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 2 hours traveling from Melbourne to Christchurch. Expect slightly colder weather when traveling from Melbourne in February: highs in Christchurch hover around 26°C, while lows dip to 13°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Tue) to allow enough time to fly back home.
