Christchurch

— 21 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 (Akaroa Lighthouse, Dolphin & Whale Watching, &more), Island Hills Station (in Culverden) and Waipara (Waipara Springs Winery & Greystone Wines). On the 2nd (Sun), spend the day riding on TranzAlpine Train. The adventure continues: examine the collection at International Antarctic Centre, don't miss a visit to 185 Empty White Chairs - Earthquake Memorial, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Cardboard Cathedral, and learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Willowbank Wildlife Reserve.

In May, daily temperatures in Christchurch can reach 17°C, while at night they dip to 5°C.
