Christchurch holidays

The South Island’s largest city, Christchurch is an entertaining mixture of refined lifestyle and cultural excitement. The tranquil Avon river meanders through the city, historic buildings house a lively arts community and restored trams make it easy for visitors to get around. The first four ships arrived from England to settle Christchurch in 1850, and their legacy lives on in the city’s grand heritage buildings and stately parks. On 22 February 2011, an earthquake struck Christchurch causing widespread damage to buildings and infrastructure in the city. As a result, the city centre is undergoing rebuilding at this time. Accommodation and tours on the outskirts of the city, with the exception of the township of Lyttleton, which was the epicentre of the earthquake, are operating as normal.
