There's no need to worry about feeling bored in this bustling city. New Brighton Beach and Mona Vale will keep you on the go. International Antarctic Centre and the Canterbury Museum are also some popular attractions that won't disappoint you.

It's hard to visualize how people in the past functioned at home without all the conveniences we use today. Go behind the doors of Riccarton House and find out exactly how they did. Visitors in this destination have an abundance of choice. Take a picnic blanket, look for a cool spot and spend the afternoon in the refreshing garden breezes at Christchurch Botanic Gardens. Still have time on your hands? Over the years, countless great thinkers and visionaries have studied within the walls of University of Canterbury. Learn about its long history and accomplishments, and walk through the campus during a tour.
