Christchurch, the Garden City, is a beguiling gateway to the South Island

Perched on the east coast of New Zealand’s scenic South Island, overlooking the seemingly infinite expanse of the Pacific Ocean, Christchurch is the country’s oldest city. Its position makes it a natural gateway to the snow-capped alpine peaks and glittering glacial valleys of the rugged South Island. Christchurch itself offers idyllic pleasures for wide-eyed visitors, whether you’re punting on the Avon River or visiting one of the galleries showcasing innovative New Zealand art. You can also immerse yourself in Maori culture, or enjoy New Zealand grape varietals in one of the city’s stylish wine bars. Make your base in one of the Christchurch holiday rentals and you’ll soon be exploring a historic city and its dramatic natural surroundings.

Top things to do in Christchurch

Among the things to do here, there’s an activity that will explain the nickname “Garden City”. Founded in the 1860s, the Botanic Gardens is a haven of vivid flowers and lush plants is framed by the Avon River, and is the ideal place to relax and breathe in heady natural scents after a walk around the city. Another iconic part of Christchurch is Sumner Beach, whose wide stretch of sand and plethora of places to kick back with food and drink make it a popular escape for locals. Culture-seekers should make a beeline for Christchurch Art Gallery, whose curving, sweeping, glassy exterior is as striking as the avant-garde artworks within. Curious to learn about Maori culture? Head to Ko-Tane, a village set within the Willowbank Wildlife Reserve, where you can see the Haka performed before your eyes, along with other lively rituals and performances.

Getting around in Christchurch

Christchurch has an extensive and reliable bus network, making it fairly straightforward to get from A to B. However, to enjoy some real freedom to explore the city and the wider Canterbury region, hiring a car is recommended. Wine lovers will be in their element, with the Waipara Valley – famed for its pinot noir and riesling – just to the north of the city. Take a trip out to view the sprawling vineyards, step inside tempting tasting rooms and get a literal taste of New Zealand – all within driving distance of Christchurch holiday rentals.
