Auckland to Christchurch Travel Guide

Christchurch is a South Island city with loads of character. The 2010 and 2011 earthquakes flattened much of its historic centre, but pop up galleries, public murals and an unswervingly strong sense of community has bloomed in its place. Peeks of its European heritage remain in Hagley Park, where you can go punting on the River Avon.
Beyond the city limits, things go back to nature. The Port Hills are a case in point, serving up a web of walking and cycling trails that watch over the spectacular natural harbour.

Christchurch hit the headlines in 2010 and 2011, when a series of earthquakes toppled the city centre. Fast forward 6 years, and you’ve got a city that’s been reborn.
Massive murals wrap building sites, futuristic sculptures decorate the cathedral-less Cathedral Square, and homegrown parks add a sense of community. Elsewhere, born-again buildings and squares are filling up with Portland-esque coffee shops and food trucks.
You can still glimpse the city’s English heritage in Hagley Park. Here, punts meander down the river and past Christchurch Botanic Garden.
