About Christchurch

New Zealand has long been known for our clean ‘green’ image – we are a diversified yet small country made up of two islands (South Island & North Island).  You can travel between the two islands on the ‘Interislander’ ferry which has terminals at Picton (South) and Wellington (North).

Christchurch is the largest city in the south island of New Zealand situated on the eastern coast. Its hinterland is the large flat Canterbury Plain, a fertile and prosperous agricultural area. Beyond the plains lie the foothills and then the peaks of the Southern Alps including New Zealand’s highest peak Aoroki Mount Cook.

The city was founded in 1850 by Canterbury Association settlers from England and still retains strong ties with its history. It has a population of some 400,000 people and as well as providing services for agriculture also has a light manufacturing industry and an extensive tourism industry.


Christchurch can offer you many recreational activities from horse trekking and rock climbing to belly dancing and crafts, there are many organisations that offer lessons and opportunities in just about any cultural, sporting or recreational activity you can think of!
