Christchurch · Understand

Christchurch was established in 1850 by English settlers. Its English heritage shows in the older buildings, especially in the cultural precinct along Worcester Boulevard. The River Avon flows through the central city and disrupts the regular rectangular layout of the city streets.

Christchurch is known as the Garden City, a well-deserved name. Looking from a few floors up, one is struck by the number of trees that grow like a forest throughout the suburbs.

International tourism, especially foreign-student education for the Asian market, is a growing sector of the Christchurch economy, as is electronics and software development. Because of this there is a high concentration of cyber-cafes here.

For online visitor information, see the official Christchurch & Canterbury Tourism site http://www.christchurchnz.com

Christchurch city is recovering from a major earthquake on February 22nd. While some of the central business district is currently inaccessible (around 7 blocks), the remainder of the city and region are open for business and it remains the gateway to the rest of the South Island.
