Enjoy laidback Christchurch, New Zealand with a cosy holiday letting
A young city in transition, Christchurch has risen stoically from the aftermath of the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes. Today it's home to exciting festivals, culinary delights and a little something for everyone. Summer here runs from December to February, and is the perfect time to book a holiday cottage and explore all of Christchurch's wonders.
Art and Culture, New Zealand Style
With the original Christchurch Cathedral currently undergoing repair, inventive locals have built a Transitional Cathedral in Latimer Square from cardboard. Numerous events are organised here. The Canterbury Museum's exhibits span across colonial history, Māori art, Antarctic exploration and more.
Meanwhile, life-like replicas of fighting planes trace the history of New Zealand's Air Force at the Air Force Museum. A horse-drawn carriage ride awaits in a recreated Edwardian township at the Ferrymead Heritage Park. The Christchurch experience is complete with a historic tram ride, and punting on the Avon River.
Kid's Day Out!
Christchurch's International Antarctic Centre thrills the little ones with cute penguins, simulated polar weather and a Hagglund All-Terrain Vehicle ride.
Escape the city for the day and drive down to the Arthur's Pass National Park. There are several short, easy walks close to town offering incredible mountain views. The highly-rejuvenating Hanmer Springs is just north of Christchurch and well worth a visit. Walks through wooded forest trails, plus mountain and quad-biking is also possible here.
A Lively Cultural Calendar
The SummerTimes Festival at Hagley Park hosts art, music, BBQs and sporting events, much of it free. Clowns, jugglers and circus acts from around the world arrive in Christchurch for January's World Buskers Festival, and this is followed by the Festival of Romance around Valentine's Day.
If you're in town for Guy Fawkes Night on November 5, you'll catch a brilliant firework display at the New Brighton Pier. If you're in town during August, you'll catch the thrilling Carnival Week celebrations.
