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: Little River Gallery (in Little River), Akaroa (The Giant's House, Hinewai Reserve, & more) and Lavender Fields (in Waikuku Beach). On the 12th (Thu), spend an exhilarating day on the slopes at Mt Hutt Ski Area. On the 22nd (Sun), hike the day away at Hurunui High Country Track. There's still lots to do: admire the natural beauty at Christchurch Botanic Gardens, get engrossed in the history at Canterbury Museum, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Willowbank Wildlife Reserve, and let little ones run wild at Margaret Mahy Family Playground.

To find other places to visit, ratings, photos, and other tourist information, you can read our Christchurch tour builder .

If you are flying in from Malaysia, the closest major airport is Christchurch International Airport. In November in Christchurch, expect temperatures between 22°C during the day and 9°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 1st (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
