Christchurch and Canterbury

Welcome to our beautiful city!cc03-178
Christchurch is known as the 'Garden City'. Despite our earthquakes, Christchurch is now a safe city to live in. It is rising again and proving it is still one of the most beautiful cities in New Zealand. It is changing fast - next to old beautiful heritage buildings, a modern CBD is taking shape.  Christchurch is an easy place to walk or cycle, our new cycleways and green spaces are fantastic!
