About Christchurch City

The 'Garden City' of New Zealand

Staying in an accommodation in Christchurch's central city is an excellent way to experience all that this  popular South Island city has to offer.

Known as the 'Garden City' of New Zealand, Christchurch is home to many parks and gardens. The largest urban parks, which are popular with visitors and locals, namely the Botanical Gardens and Hagley Park, are both within walking distance of CentrePoint on Colombo.

As the largest city in the South Island, Christchurch is a gateway for travellers exploring the southern end of New Zealand. Christchurch is recovering from a series of earthquakes and visitors will be able to experience first hand the re-birth of a great city.

While areas of the city centre remain cordoned, visitors can still enjoy arts and crafts markets in both the city centre and suburban neighbourhoods and a wide range of great restaurants and shopping throughout the city. The Botanic Gardens retain the charm of an 'English' Garden with ducks and punts cruising gently along the River Avon, which meanders through the area.
