Things to Do

If you're making a trip of it and are looking for activities to fill your time, check out 100% Pure New Zealand or the ChristchurchNZ site for the 'must see' Christchurch tourist attractions and activites.

From lush vineyards and wild coastlines to sky-piercing mountains and pristing glacial lakes, Canterbury is a region of remarkable contrasts and a haven for those seeking incredible scenery and adventure.

Journey through the Southern Alps on the TranzAlpine, investigate the night sky in the world's largest International Dark Sky Reserve or get up close with whales in Kaikoura.

Watch the steam rise amid murmurs of conversation as you sit back and relax in Hanmer Springs' natural hot pools, explore boutique galleries and hidden bays in Akaroa and Banks Peninsula or enjoy the delights of the North Canterbury wine region

Or, take in the turquioise lakes, powerful glaciers and the sky-piercing alps of the Mackenzie district and Aoraki/Mount Cook National Park.
