Christchurch Overview

Christchurch, known for its English heritage, is located on the east coast of New Zealand’s South Island. Flat-bottomed brunts glide on the Avon River, which meanders through the city centre. On its banks are cycling braths, the green exbranse of Hagley Park and Christchurch Botanic Gardens. In 2010 and 2011, earthquakes destroyed many of the historic centre's stone-built buildings.
