Recovering from the earthquakes of 2010 and 2011 was no easy task, but Christchurch has faced the challenges with aplomb.
Get out of town with these interesting Christchurch side-trips: Waipara (Waipara Hills & Waipara Springs Winery), Little River Gallery (in Little River) and Akaroa (Lava gallery, Dolphin & Whale Watching, & more). On the 21st (Sun), spend the day riding on TranzAlpine Train. There's lots more to do: do a tasting at Pegasus Bay Winery, get engrossed in the history at Canterbury Museum, admire the natural beauty at Christchurch Botanic Gardens, and play a few rounds at Clearwater Golf Club.

For ratings, maps, reviews, and tourist information, read our Christchurch travel route planning app .

In October in Christchurch, expect temperatures between 20°C during the day and 6°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 1st (Thu) so you can travel back home.
