About Christchurch

Christchurch is the largest city in the South Island and the third most populous city in New Zealand. In February 2011 an earthquake measuring magnitude 6.3 struck the city, claiming a total of 185 lives. The city has experienced growth since the disaster and has made substantial progress in rebuilding the city into its former glory.

Christchurch is full of activities and sightseeing opportunities. Take a tour of the city and learn about the earthquakes, go punting on the Avon River, or wander through beautiful Hagley Park.
