Christchurch

Recovering from the earthquakes of 2010 and 2011 was no easy task, but Christchurch has faced the challenges with aplomb.
Get outdoors at River Rafting & Tubing and Sumner Beach (Cave Rock). You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Horseback Riding Tours and Lake Lyndon. Venture out of the city with trips to Hogs Back Track (in Castle Hill), Smithfield Berries (in Ashburton) and Akaroa (Fire & Ice - Gemstone Jewellery Specialists, Dolphin & Whale Watching, & more). On the 18th (Thu), spend the day riding on TranzAlpine Train. On the 25th (Thu), hike the day away at Hurunui High Country Track. The adventure continues: tour the water at your own pace with Antigua Boat Sheds, admire the sheer force of Washpen Falls, trek along Manuka Bay Track, and take an in-depth tour of Canterbury Museum.

October in Christchurch sees daily highs of 20°C and lows of 6°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 31st (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
