Traditionally known as the Garden City, Christchurch's award winning Botanic Gardens are over 150 years old and boast an enviable collection of exotic and native plants. Hire a punt and meander down the Avon River which runs right through the city centre, it's a great way to sight see.

Alternatively, catch a ride aboard the Historic Tram or rent a bicycle and explore the city by pedal. Other popular activities include the International Antarctic Centre, Orana Wildlife Park, mountain biking or driving through the Port Hills for stunning views of the city and coast.
