Recovering from the earthquakes of 2010 and 2011 was no easy task, but Christchurch has faced the challenges with aplomb.
Get out of town with these interesting Christchurch side-trips: Little River Gallery (in Little River), High Peak Heliski (in Windwhistle) and Akaroa (Dolphin & Whale Watching & The Garden at French Farm). On the 2nd (Sun), spend the day riding on TranzAlpine Train. The adventure continues: get engrossed in the history at Canterbury Museum, walk around Christchurch Botanic Gardens, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Christchurch Cathedral, and see the interesting displays at Quake City.

For where to stay, more things to do, reviews, and tourist information, read our Christchurch route builder app.

In August in Christchurch, expect temperatures between 14°C during the day and 2°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
