Christchurch
Christchurch
Established by stiff upper lipped English settlers and known as the Garden City for its abundance of trees. Christchurch is a friendly city situated at the edge of the Canterbury plains. In February of 2011, this hardy city on New Zealand's South Island was destroyed by an earthquake. The recovery is in progress and bolstered, by the historic strength of the inhabitants. The business student youth culture and tourism industry are sure to assist in the rebuilding of the town. The top attractions in town are Cathedral Square, The Botanic Gardens, and Sumner Beach.

Things To Do in Christchurch

Christchurch Botanic Gardens
4.5/5
218 Reviews
If you want to see why Christchurch is the "garden city," then the Botanic Gardens are a must-visit. You can arrive as early as 7 AM to experience this magnificent collection of flora from New Zealand and elsewhere - and best of all, you are sure to notice quickly that admission is free! Did you know that the Botanic Gardens were launched in 1863 with the simple planting of just one English Oak Tree? Today, you can see that the Botanic Gardens are more than just trees - the Botanic Gardens consist of 21 hectares boasting trails, art, plants, a cafe, and conservatories. Before your visit, double check that the facilities you want to visit are open, as in the wake of the earthquake, several buildings have been temporarily closed for earthquake strengthening work.
Church of the Good Shepherd
4.7/5
422 Reviews
Church
The Church of the Good Shepherd is a quaint stone church that is a symbol of New Zealand's Lake Tekapo. The church was constructed from building materials collected from surrounding construction sites, preserving the stones and plants around it. This gorgeous and elegant church blends perfectly with the natural scenery around it. The church is a popular destination for tourists, who enjoy taking a seat in the pews and watching the beautiful lake outside.
Lake Tekapo
4.6/5
377 Reviews
Lake
Lake Tekapo is located between Christchurch and Queenstown, in the heart of the Mount Cook Basin and MacKenzie. Surrounded on all four sides by thick bush and white snow, the sight of lake Tekapo under the dazzling sun is stunningly beautiful. As the glaciers of the Southern Alps melt into the lake, the rocks within the glaciers are broken into fine powder. As a result, the color of the lake in this area is a pale blue tinged with milky white.
Mount Cook National Park
4.6/5
246 Reviews
UNESCO World Heritage-Natural Site
A third of Mount Cook National Park is covered in ice or snow all year round. One of the highest peaks in Mount Cook National Park is Mount Cook itself, which is one of the highest in all of Oceania. It is a great location to take a stroll through the park, or take part in other outdoor adventures, such as viewing New Zealand's Tasman Glacier or taking a helicopter to see the majestic peaks from above.
International Antarctic Center
4.5/5
145 Reviews
Exhibition
The Christchurch International Antarctic Centre is an important gateway to the Antarctic. The International Antarctic Centre is located near Christchurch International Airport and was unveiled on September 28, 1990, operated by Christchurch International Airport Group. Here, you can learn about the history, geology and other knowledge of the continent of the Antarctic Circle through sound, light and electricity. The architecture of the International Antarctic Center is inspired by the special features of the Antarctic, such as icebergs and glaciers. The pavilion is also designed according to the climate and ice and snow of the Antarctic.
Avon River
4.5/5
196 Reviews
The Avon River lingers in Christchurch, dividing Christchurch into two. This river, the same name as the Avon River in the UK, runs through the beautiful scenery of Christchurch. Sit on the Avon River with a British-style punt and sway slowly on the calm river. Enjoy the enchanting scenery along the way while enjoying the time. It is very romantic.
