Where to stay in Christchurch

Exploring Christchurch

Christchurch, set on New Zealand’s dramatically lovely South Island, became the centre of world attention in 2011 for all the wrong reasons when a devastating earthquake destroyed the heart of the city. Nowadays, recovery and rebuilding is well under way, restoring Christchurch to its former position as a hub for touring the natural beauty made famous by the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy.

Sightseeing in Christchurch

- International Antarctic Centre

A world-class experience focusing on the city’s population as the port from which most Antarctic expeditions begin, the Antarctic Centre gives simulated polar weather, exhibits about the science missions to the icy continent, all-terrain vehicle rides, penguins and much more. It’s a great day out for families as well as adults fascinated by the world’s last, great wilderness.

- Arthur's Pass National Park

Located in the magnificent Southern Alps, this national park is an unbelievably scenic drive from Christchurch or a spectacular train ride on the Transalpine which terminates at Greymouth on the west coast. Majestic mountains, forests, wild rivers and their gorges are a natural wonderland unsurpassed anywhere on earth.

Transportation in Christchurch

Driving in Christchurch is easy, and parking is usually no problem. Hiring a car comes into its own for touring the South Island’s scenic wonders and trips to New Brighton Beach, the weekend hub for most local people due to its regular events, quaint shops and beachside pubs. The city’s bus service is adequate, but occasional gaps in the service make getting around a slow process, especially late at night and on Sundays.
