Recovering from the earthquakes of 2010 and 2011 was no easy task, but Christchurch has faced the challenges with aplomb.
Get out of town with these interesting Christchurch side-trips: Geraldine (Geraldine Observatory, Geraldine Vintage Car and Machinery Museum, & more), Little River Gallery (in Little River) and Akaroa (Swim with Dolphins, Dolphin & Whale Watching, & more). Next up on the itinerary: catch a ride on TranzAlpine Train, stroll around Hagley Park, admire the natural beauty at Christchurch Botanic Gardens, and see the interesting displays at Quake City.
