Christchurch can offer you museums – like the Arts Centre and Canterbury Museum– as well as botanical gardens, and plenty of great nightlife.

If you want some relaxing down time, head to Hanmer Springs, a small spa resort known for is natural hot springs and great hiking. When the wild starts calling your name, it’s time to set off for Arthur’s Pass National Park, one of the most popular natural parks on the island.

Getting to Canterbury
