Christchurch is the largest city in the South Island. It is the main transport hub for the Canterbury region offering a Domestic and International Airport, Bus Terminal and Rail Link. Widely known for its fantastic eateries, bars, shops and all manors of leisure pursuits, it offers everything from hot air ballooning, swimming with dolphins, mountaineering to skiing slightly further south. If you have a love for the great outdoors, where better to base yourself that in Christchurch.
Viewed as a gateway to the South Island, this beautiful city offers something for everyone.
