The city of Christchurch is situated on the Canterbury Plains between the Pacific Ocean and the breathtaking Southern Alps. Its picturesque parks and gardens have seen it dubbed New Zealand’s “Garden City”.
The dedication of the locals after a major earthquake in February 2011 has seen Christchurch emerge as a city reimagined, complete with inspiring street art, a new “pop-up” cathedral and a quirky new shopping mall made from brightly coloured shipping containers. This innovative design ethic has also helped the city bounce back with stronger and more vibrant event venues and accommodation options. Christchurch conference venues range from elaborate to unique and with more than 4,000 accommodation rooms available, there’s something for all tastes.
Christchurch International Airport is the major international gateway into the South Island. Guests can fly to Christchurch from Australia, Singapore, Fiji, and the Cook Islands. Domestic flights are regular, linking the city with all major cities and many smaller towns across New Zealand.
