Christchurch, located in the province (region) of Canterbury, is the largest city on the South Island, yet remains a friendly and welcoming city compact enough to easily explore on foot or bicycle, all within arm's reach from stunning nature.
Following the 2010-2011 earthquakes, Christchurch has re-emerged as a lively, ever-changing city and it is better than ever. A unique destination where creativity and innovation flow and where the hospitality and arts scenes have really taken off.
