In Christchurch, one of New Zealand's largest cities, the streets hum with activity. 

 

From early morning brunches by the Avon to all night partying on the strip, the city has embraced the café scene. Street theatre, the International Busker's Festival, the Town Crier and the internationally recognised Wizard all add to the colourful and vibrant atmosphere.

Christchurch's colonial heritage provides a living historical backdrop for the city's attractions. The Arts Centre, The Robert McDougall Art Gallery and the Canterbury Museum combine the grandeur of Christchurch's past with the dynamism of it's present, playing host to a multitude of unique exhibitions, festivals and displays.

For those that appreciate sophistication, Christchurch offers a range of attractions. 

Fine dining, an evening at the theatre or a night at the casino, a punt down the Avon, a gondola ride to a hilltop restaurant or a Champagne balloon safari.

Christchurch has something for even the most jaded palette.

And Christchurch is the city that loves to party. In every season and for nearly every occasion the city has a celebration. 

Even in the depths of winter, Christchurch plays on and, with ten convenient ski areas, fantastic winter sports and a climate that allows you to take advantage of both, with good reason.
