Aotearoa's Second Biggest City

We might be one the country’s biggest cities, but we have the best of both worlds – We’ve got all the best bits of city life while nestled between the Pacific Ocean and the Port Hills with the ancient volcanic Banks Peninsula on the other side. We’re known as the Garden City for a reason and peaceful rivers meander through our city. 

The Gateway to The South

With one of the main international airports Ōtautahi Christchurch is the gateway to exploring Canterbury and the beautiful South Island. Wineries, wildlife, spectacular sounds, glacial valleys and star filled skies create an endless playground right on our doorstep.
