Welcome to Christchurch
There is nowhere else in the world where, within two hours of an international airport, you can ski at a world-class alpine resort, play golf, bungy jump, raft, mountain bike, hot-air balloon, wind surf, whale watch and visit internationally-acclaimed wineries and gardens.
Christchurch is New Zealand's second-largest city and the gateway to the South Island. Bordered by hills and the Pacific Ocean, it is situated on the edge of the Canterbury Plains that stretch to the Southern Alps.
The Central City and some eastern suburbs have suffered earthquake damage but the city as a whole continues to operate and Christchurch is still a great place to live, work and play! Check out this interactive map that shows up-to-date locations of things to see and do in Christchurch as the city's rebuild takes shape. Here you can quickly and easily find what you are looking for - from markets to restaurants, free wi-fi spots to popular parks.
