Christchurch is where all the accommodated tours of the South Island start from.

Christchurch is the largest city in the South Island of New Zealand, and the second-largest in New Zealand.

Christchurch is known as the garden city, though after the recent earthquakes it is said the city will be re-built as a "city in a garden".

The pretty river Avon flows through the city and the many sporting fields create an open city environment.

Guidebook Lonely Planet named Christchurch in its Top 10 Cities To Visit In 2013 list.
