Christchurch & Kaikoura

Eat the freshest of seafood from roadside stalls, discover quaint seaside towns and marvel at majestic whales.

Christchurch & Kaikoura are fascinating destinations on New Zealand’s South Island. From manicured vineyards and wild coastlines to towering mountains and pristine glacial lakes, this is a region of remarkable contrasts and a haven for those seeking incredible scenery and adventure.

From Christchurch city, you’ll find the sparkling Pacific Ocean, the majestic Southern Alps and an ancient volcanic peninsula all within driving distance. Journey through the Southern Alps by train, investigate the night sky in the world’s largest International Dark Sky Reserve or get up close with giant sperm whales, pilot whales, orca and humpbacks in Kaikōura – from a boat, plane or helicopter.
Christchurch combines urban regeneration with heritage, culture and exhilarating activity. The picturesque coastal town of Kaikōura is the perfect place for marine life encounters, coastal walks, and tucking into a plate of crayfish. Christchurch & Kaikoura are not to be missed.

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