Christchurch

— 20 nights

Garden City

Recovering from the earthquakes of 2010 and 2011 was no easy task, but Christchurch has faced the challenges with aplomb.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Port Hills and Ashburton Aviation Museum. You'll explore and learn at Geraldine Observatory and Geraldine Vintage Car and Machinery Museum. Get out of town with these interesting Christchurch side-trips: Akaroa (Akaroa Museum, Saint Peter's Anglican Church, &more), Ashburton (Ashburton Art Gallery, The Plains Vintage Railway & Historical Museum, &more) and Little River Rail Station (in Little River). On the 6th (Thu), spend the day riding on TranzAlpine Train. Next up on the itinerary: identify plant and animal life at Kura Tawhiti Conservation Area, hike along Taylors Mistake - Awaroa / Godley Head Walk, take in the dramatic scenery at Washpen Falls, and take an in-depth tour of Canterbury Museum.
