Christchurch Vacations

If you need some help finding your bearings, Wellington, the national capital, is 190 miles (306 kilometers) to the northeast. Additionally, Kaiapoi is 10 miles (16 kilometers) to the north.

Visitors to this part of Canterbury will be sharing space with roughly 360,000 residents.

Explore Christchurch

Major Attractions

So much to do and so little time. If you want to discover what the city has to offer, add New Brighton Beach and Mona Vale to your vacation itinerary. If you get the chance, try to swing by International Antarctic Centre and the Canterbury Museum too.

It's difficult to envisage how people once survived at home without all the modernized appliances we have nowadays. Peer inside Riccarton House and learn how they did. Seeking some more ideas? Bring a good read, find a quiet grassy spot and soak up the refreshing garden aromas at Christchurch Botanic Gardens. But that's not all. Some of the region's most innovative minds were reared in the classrooms of University of Canterbury. After spending a few hours here, you might have a lightbulb moment too!
