Recovering from the earthquakes of 2010 and 2011 was no easy task, but Christchurch has faced the challenges with aplomb.
Visiting Mt Hutt Ski Area and Hinewai Reserve will get you outdoors. Step off the beaten path and head to Kura Tawhiti Conservation Area and Corsair Bay. Get out of town with these interesting Christchurch side-trips: Washpen Falls (in Darfield), Saint Peter's Anglican Church (in Akaroa) and Rakaia Salmon Statue (in Rakaia). There's much more to do: take in the dramatic natural features at Sumner Beach (Cave Rock), trek along Otukaikino Walk, don't miss a visit to Canterbury Earthquake National Memorial, and have fun at Velocity Karts.

For traveler tips, other places to visit, maps, and more tourist information, go to the Christchurch trip itinerary planning tool .

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airport is Christchurch International Airport. In October, daily temperatures in Christchurch can reach 20°C, while at night they dip to 6°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
