Established by stiff upper lipped English settlers and known as the Garden City for its abundance of trees. Christchurch is a friendly city situated at the edge of the Canterbury plains. In February of 2011, this hardy city on New Zealand's South Island was destroyed by an earthquake. The recovery is in progress and bolstered, by the historic strength of the inhabitants. The business student youth culture and tourism industry are sure to assist in the rebuilding of the town. The top attractions in town are Cathedral Square, The Botanic Gardens, and Sumner Beach.

Things To Do in Christchurch

International Antarctic Center

Stephen SchreckMany dream about visiting Antarctica but never get the chance to visit. However, the International Antarctic Centre lets you come a little closer to that dream. A wonderful way to get a small glimpse of what the unexplored continent is like, at the International Antarctic Centre, you will discover the landscape and wildlife of this mesmerizing slice of the world. You will also learn about the impact humans are having on Antarctica. Perhaps the best part of the museum is the Snow and Ice Experience. There, visitors can play on icy slides, feel what it’s like in an Antarctic storm, or take a cold-water plunge.

Church of the Good Shepherd
424 Reviews
Helendj9811This beautiful stone church is located on the shore of Lake Tekapo in New Zealand, with a vast landscape in the background, giving the illusion of people walking in the middle of the painting! The blue sky, the crystal clear lake, the white stones scattered on the shore and the swarms of albatross by the lake are just a postcard! The children also like it very much, throwing stones on the shore, interacting with water birds, and we were pleasantly surprised to find a cute bunny in the grass~ Highly recommend the friends who drive in South Island, New Zealand to check in, take pictures, sunset The church below and Lake Tekapo are really beautiful! The Church of the Good Shepherd is named after a sculpture of a shepherd dog. It is a tribute to the pioneers who created farmland and the Mackenzie area in the past. It is very memorable that they will always remember their great achievements. The church was built in 1935 by the famous architect Benjamin Woolfield Mumford, and its Gothic wood and stone structures are unique in New Zealand. Many new couples choose to hold their wedding here. From the window of the church altar, you can see the most spectacular scenery of the Southern Alps. Transportation: Lake Tekapo is a 3-hour drive from Christchurch
