Recovering from the earthquakes of 2010 and 2011 was no easy task, but Christchurch has faced the challenges with aplomb.
Venture out of the city with trips to Akaroa (Swim with Dolphins, Dolphin & Whale Watching, & more), Little River Gallery (in Little River) and Geraldine Observatory (in Geraldine). There's much more to do: take a memorable ride with TranzAlpine Train, take an in-depth tour of Canterbury Museum, get to know the resident critters at Willowbank Wildlife Reserve, and walk around Christchurch Botanic Gardens.

To see other places to visit, more things to do, traveler tips, and other tourist information, read Christchurch trip planner .

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airport is Christchurch International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 23°C in March, and nighttime lows around 11°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
