Recovering from the earthquakes of 2010 and 2011 was no easy task, but Christchurch has faced the challenges with aplomb.
Venture out of the city with trips to Waipara (Waipara Hills & Waipara Springs Winery), Little River (Manderley Farm & Little River Gallery) and Akaroa (Lava gallery, Dolphin & Whale Watching, & more). On the 16th (Tue), spend the day riding on TranzAlpine Train. There's lots more to do: do a tasting at Pegasus Bay Winery, explore the striking landscape at Sumner Beach (Cave Rock), take an in-depth tour of Canterbury Museum, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Willowbank Wildlife Reserve.

For reviews, maps, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read Christchurch sightseeing planner.

In October, daytime highs in Christchurch are 20°C, while nighttime lows are 6°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 29th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
