Recovering from the earthquakes of 2010 and 2011 was no easy task, but Christchurch has faced the challenges with aplomb.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Christchurch: Geraldine Observatory (in Geraldine), Little River Gallery (in Little River) and Akaroa (Swim with Dolphins, Dolphin & Whale Watching, & more). There's still lots to do: take a memorable ride with TranzAlpine Train, don't miss a visit to 185 Empty White Chairs - Earthquake Memorial, see the interesting displays at International Antarctic Centre, and pause for some serene contemplation at Cardboard Cathedral.

For maps, ratings, photos, and tourist information, use the Christchurch road trip planning site .

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airport is Christchurch International Airport. November in Christchurch sees daily highs of 22°C and lows of 9°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 1st (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
