Christchurch

Christchurch is known as “The Garden City”. It is New Zealand's second largest city. In February 2011 Christchurch suffered a devastating earthquake that destroyed most of the city's Central Business District and many of its beautiful heritage buildings. Today Christchurch is busy rebuilding and showing a creative spirit that is getting the attention of the world.

There are interesting excursions such as the Tranzalpine Train to the Southern Alps and a visit to Kaikura, a fishermen town about 2 hours north of Christchurch where whales can be watched year around.
