On the Map: Known for its English heritage, Christchurch is a city located on New Zealand’s South Island. The city is roughly 483 km (300 miles) northeast of Queenstown and 415 km (258 miles) south of Nelson. 

Often referred to as the Garden City, Christchurch features majestic trees and extensive parks and gardens, the most notable of which is expansive Hagley Park in the heart of the city. Bordering the park, you will find the botanical gardens and the Gothic revival building which houses the Canterbury Museum. The Avon River gently winds its way around these inner city landmarks and out through sprawling suburbs to the Pacific Ocean. In contrast to this flat cityscape and the surrounding Canterbury Plains, the skyline to the south is dominated by the tussock and rocky outcrops of the Port Hills. The hills separate the city from the volcanic Banks Peninsula and Lyttelton Harbour, where English settlers arrived by ship in 1850 to establish New Zealand’s first city. Visitors to Christchurch today will witness a virtual rebirth of the city as demolitions, repairs, and rebuilding occurs following several earthquakes in late 2010 early 2011. Visitors can explore this unique city by way of a double-decker bus, vintage bicycle, gondola, tram or classic Edwardian punt (a type of boat). No matter how you choose to explore Christchurch, it is sure to leave a lasting impression.
