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: Geraldine (Susan Badcock Studio, Geraldine Observatory, &more), Akaroa (Dolphin & Whale Watching, Kayaking & Canoeing, &more) and Little River Gallery (in Little River). There's much more to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Christchurch Botanic Gardens, get engrossed in the history at Canterbury Museum, see the interesting displays at Quake City, and walk around Hagley Park.

To find where to stay, topicsMoreInfo.option.ratings, traveler tips, and tourist information, read Christchurch trip site .
