Destination Profile

With the snow-capped Southern Alps serrating the horizon and the sloshing Pacific rolling into its coves, Christchurch is a fine introduction to the wild nature of NZ's South Island. But before you depart for the adventure mecca of Queenstown or the whale-splashed seas of Kaikoura, there's lots to explore right outside the airport terminal. Hailed as the Garden City for its abundance of parks, Christchurch offers quaint English-style flower displays and river-babbling green spaces. There's a rejuvenated center awash with boutique shops, museums, and coffee roasteries. And the surroundings are all Canterbury vineyards and hiking trails. Cheap flights to Christchurch from Australia often go nonstop, taking just over three hours in the air.
