Recovering from the earthquakes of 2010 and 2011 was no easy task, but Christchurch has faced the challenges with aplomb.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Taylors Mistake - Awaroa / Godley Head Walk and Port Hills. Step out of the city life by going to Dolphin & Whale Watching and Corsair Bay. Change things up with these side-trips from Christchurch: Rakaia (Rakaia Salmon Statue & Rakaia Gorge Walkway), Washpen Falls (in Darfield) and Akaroa (Catholic St. Patrick's Akaroa, Fire & Ice - Gemstone Jewellery Specialists, &more). There's lots more to do: identify plant and animal life at Kura Tawhiti Conservation Area, explore the world behind art at Christchurch Art Gallery (Te Puna o Waiwhetu), explore the striking landscape at Sumner Beach (Cave Rock), and see the interesting displays at International Antarctic Centre.

For ratings, where to stay, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read Christchurch day trip planning tool.

In December, plan for daily highs up to 24°C, and evening lows to 12°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 13th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
