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: 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: enjoy the views from TranzAlpine Train, examine the collection at International Antarctic Centre, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Cardboard Cathedral, and take an in-depth tour of Canterbury Museum.

To find where to stay, maps, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read Christchurch road trip website .

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airport is Christchurch International Airport. In November, daytime highs in Christchurch are 22°C, while nighttime lows are 9°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 10th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
