Christchurch: The Garden City

Duration
3 Days
Prices From:
US$ 510

New Zealand’s South Island is one of the most stunning places in the world and Christchurch is its gateway. Enjoy some leisure time then take in a few of the “Garden City’s” attractions.


Though four large earthquakes devastated Christchurch between September 2010 and December 2011, this historic city remains one of New Zealand’s most beautiful, with much for the visitor to enjoy. Your included tour visits three top attractions. Pay a visit to Antarctica without ever leaving the city, with an immersive experience at the International Antarctic Centre. See 50 different species of bird and animal life at Willowbank Wildlife Reserve, before heading to the Air Force Museum. With 28 fully restored aircraft, this essential stop will thrill military history buffs. With plenty of time at leisure, why not take a tour of sites affected by the quakes for a glimpse of a resilient, rebuilding Christchurch?
