The City | Christchurch

Christchurch is the largest city in New Zealand’s South Island and is referred to as the ‘Garden City’ due to its stunning parks, gardens and tree-lined streets. Christchurch and the surrounding Canterbury Region is a hive of activity where, within two hours of the international airport, you could be bungee jumping, rafting, skiing, hot air ballooning, whale watching or sampling fine wine at the region’s world class wineries.

Christchurch is one of New Zealand’s most active sporting hubs and is renowned for its many sporting heroes and successful sports teams.

In 2018 we are proud to be holding a month-long Golden Oldies Celebration in Christchurch. For the first time ever all Golden Oldies Sports Festivals will be held in one city, over the course of the month. Over 35’s will partake in Netball, Cricket, Rugby, Golf, Softball, Football, Hockey, Basketball, Lawn Bowls and Squash.

Experience the passion and celebrate New Zealand with the Christchurch Casino Golden Oldies Sports Celebration 2018.
