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.
