We invite you to take a tour…

Christchurch and Canterbury


Canterbury's incredible diversity comes from being home to nine unique districts, each with their own identity and charm, and at the heart of the region, the Garden City of Christchurch with its magnificent architecture and cosmopolitan city lifestyle, complete with European style cafes and non-stop program of entertainment from the Festival of Romance through to the Winter Carnival.

Home of Middle Earth

This is the region in which the Academy Award nominated "Lord of the Rings" chose to film some of its most spectacular scenes. It is home to soaring mountains and alpine hot pools, rare marine life and magnificent beaches, fast racing rivers and rolling green hills … enviable wineries and the wild wilderness of the West Coast.

Mild, sunny summers, red and gold autumns, clear winter days, and spectacular springs characterise this region and the city of Christchurch … where you'll find some 350,000 staunch Cantabrians and the Crusaders which (we believe) is the best rugby team in the world!

Conference Facilities

It's not by chance that the region and Christchurch itself attracts some of the country's largest and most prestigious conferences, resulting in New Zealand's first purpose-built Convention Center, which has hosted high profile events for more than 2,500 people at a time from black-tie events such as the nationally acclaimed Halberg Sports Awards to corporate conferences and incentives.

But please, don't take our word for it … take of our website online and see just how much this region has to offer … and how you can make the most of your visit with Canterbury's very own "Adventure Canterbury".
