Christchurch

— 17 nights

Garden City

Recovering from the earthquakes of 2010 and 2011 was no easy task, but Christchurch has faced the challenges with aplomb.
Family-friendly places like Canterbury Museum and Christchurch Gondola will thrill your kids. Venture out of the city with trips to Dolphin & Whale Watching (in Akaroa), High Peak Heliski (in Windwhistle) and Springfield (Porters Ski Area & Mt Cheeseman Ski Area). On the 2nd (Thu), spend the day riding on TranzAlpine Train. And it doesn't end there: walk around Christchurch Botanic Gardens, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Willowbank Wildlife Reserve, see the sky in a new way at Geraldine Observatory, and examine the collection at Quake City.

To see photos, where to stay, maps, and other tourist information, you can read our Christchurch trip planner.

If you are flying in from Indonesia, the closest major aiport is Christchurch International Airport. In September, plan for daily highs up to 16°C, and evening lows to 5°C.
