Recovering from the earthquakes of 2010 and 2011 was no easy task, but Christchurch has faced the challenges with aplomb.
Explore Christchurch's surroundings by going to Geraldine Observatory (in Geraldine), Little River Gallery (in Little River) and Akaroa (Swim with Dolphins, Dolphin & Whale Watching, & more). There's lots more to do: catch a ride on TranzAlpine Train, don't miss a visit to Cardboard Cathedral, examine the collection at International Antarctic Centre, and stroll around Christchurch Botanic Gardens.

To find maps, more things to do, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Christchurch online sightseeing planner .

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airport is Christchurch International Airport. In April, daily temperatures in Christchurch can reach 20°C, while at night they dip to 8°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 15th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
