Beyond Christchurch

Christchurch blooms along the fertile riverbanks of the Avon, lending it the name "The Garden City." However, since the earthquake in 2010, its citizens have mockingly dubbed it "The Rocking City" instead. Rightly so, because Christchurch is set in a mesmerising landscape formed over millions of years by dramatic volcanic and tectonic activity. It’s the perfect starting point for a number of adventures.
