About Christchurch

Established by stiff upper lipped English settlers and known as the Garden City for its abundance of trees. Christchurch is a friendly city situated at the edge of the Canterbury plains. In February of 2011, this hardy city on New Zealand's South Island was destroyed by an earthquake. The recovery is in progress and bolstered, by the historic strength of the inhabitants. The business student youth culture and tourism industry are sure to assist in the rebuilding of the town. The top attractions in town are Cathedral Square, The Botanic Gardens, and Sumner Beach.

Popular Attractions in Christchurch

Christchurch Botanic Gardens
4.6/5

Botanical Garden
If you want to see why Christchurch is the "garden city," then the Botanic Gardens are a must-visit. You can arrive as early as 7 AM to experience this magnificent collection of flora from New Zealand and elsewhere - and best of all, you are sure to notice quickly that admission is free! Did you know that the Botanic Gardens were launched in 1863 with the simple planting of just one English Oak Tree? Today, you can see that the Botanic Gardens are more than just trees - the Botanic Gardens consist of 21 hectares boasting trails, art, plants, a cafe, and conservatories. Before your visit, double check that the facilities you want to visit are open, as in the wake of the earthquake, several buildings have been temporarily closed for earthquake strengthening work.

Sit on the Avon River with a British-style punt and sway slowly on the calm river. Enjoy the enchanting scenery along the way while enjoying the time. It is very romantic.
