Description

 

christchurch
Having picked you up we drive to Christchurch and by the city’s centre. Here you can assess the progress of the rebuild following the 2010/2011 earthquakes. We will discuss the reasons for the event, its impact and the exciting plans for the future. We will also delve into the history of city and briefly explore the beautiful Botanic Gardens where you will discover why New Zealand’s flora and fauna is unique.  City stops will include the River precinct, the Transitional Cathedral (Cardboard Cathedral), and the Tannery shopping precinct.

If time permits  we will head to the Port Hills which overlook Christchurch and present stunning views of the city, Canterbury Plains, Lyttelton Harbour and the distant Southern Alps.
