Congress City and Canterbury Region
Christchurch / Ōtautahi, is currently a city in constant change. The Canterbury earthquakes have provided an unprecedented opportunity to rethink, revitalise and renew the city of Christchurch. Urban regeneration is providing an ever evolving landscape of new buildings and green spaces. Amazing street art sits right next to heritage traditional Gothic Revival architecture.
Form the Pacific Ocean, ancient volcanic Banks Peninsula and wondrous marine life in Kaikoura, across patchwork plains – home to adrenaline pumping activities in Hanmer Springs and lush vineyards of Waipara – rising to pristine glacial lakes and the majestic Southern Alps presided by Aoraki / Mount Cook. You’ll find something special in Canterbury.
