Christchurch & Canterbury’s Best Activities, Attractions & Things to Do

There are so many things to do in the Canterbury region – from ethical animal encounters to jet boating and everything in between, it’s all there.

Whilst in Christchurch, you’ll also want to allow plenty of time to explore the rebuild currently underway in the city centre.  In addition, we suggest you hop in the car and head out to one of the many seaside towns within the city.

Heading out of the city, you’ll find incredible locations such as Hanmer Springs, Kaikoura, Mt Cook and Tekapo just waiting for you to explore.

Grab your bags and a camera – this is a part of New Zealand you don’t want to miss!
