City Sights

Christchurch is home to some of New Zealand's most beautiful buildings, and at the centre of this is Cathedral Square. Although damaged in the 2011 earthquake, the landmark Anglican Cathedral remains one of the most beautiful buildings here.

The cultural precinct is also popular with tourists and is home to the Arts Centre, The Canterbury Museum and the Art Gallery.

White Water Rafting

Take an exhilarating jet boat ride across the white waters and experience the thrills of skimming across the water's surface at unbelievable speeds.

Highlights will include Diamond Harbour, Quail Island and Parau Bay, while wildlife spotting is also a common occurrence. Keep an eye out for the Hectors Dolphin (the world's smallest dolphin found only in New Zealand) and the tiny blue penguins that frequent this area.
