New Zealand - Christchurch & Canterbury (Chapter)

16th Edition Sep 2012

This is the Christchurch & Canterbury chapter from Lonely Planet's New Zealand guidebook.

Visiting the country's second-largest city as it's being rebuilt and reborn is both interesting and inspiring, while just a short drive from Christchurch's dynamic re-emergence, Banks Peninsula conceals hidden bays and beaches - a backdrop for kayaking and wildlife cruises.

  • take a soothing soak at Lake Tekapo's Alpine Springs & Spa
  • maps
  • meander along Christchurch's Avon River by punt or bicycle
  • transport
  • tramp in the shadow of New Zealand's highest peak in Aoraki/Mt Cook National Park
  • restaurants & accommodation

Coverage includes: Christchurch, Lyttelton, Akaroa & Banks Peninsula, Hanmer Springs, Lewis Pass Highway, Craigieburn Forest Park, Arthur's Pass, Methven, Mt Somers, Timaru, Mackenzie Country and Aoraki/Mt Cook National Park.
