A day at the Botanic Gardens
Whether you're into gardening or not, the Christchurch Botanic Gardens deserve an hour or two. Pocketed with a delightful selection of established gardens and trees, the meandering pathways take you on a journey through the best bits and along the Avon River.
The TranzAlpine Rail Journey is one of the world's best train journeys. It transports you through the heart of the Southern Alps to the West Coast.
