Christchurch, the Garden City

Garden CityChristchurch is a great place to live, work, visit and do business!

Christchurch is the second largest city in New Zealand and has a thriving business centre, some of the best air and sea links for international trade, world class leisure and sporting facilities, a lively arts and entertainment scene, boutique shopping and easy access to beaches and mountains.

Residents and visitors love the city's vibrant nightlife, award-winning restaurants and cafes, fashion precincts, heritage architecture and of course its gardens and wide open spaces for which the city is internationally renowned.

Located on the east coast of the South Island, Christchurch is a city of contrasts.

Christchurch PuntingIt is a place where its residents continue to enjoy a healthy, active lifestyle amidst a natural environment world-renowned for its beauty. A growing cosmopolitan ambience also adds a touch of excitement without overt flashiness.

There is nowhere else in the world where within two hours of an international airport you can ski at a world class alpine resort, play golf, bungy jump, go rafting, mountain biking, hot-air ballooning, wind surfing, whale watching and visit world class wineries and gardens.

The city centre is comfortingly compact and the most delightful central feature is the gently winding Avon River. On its grassy banks lined with poplars and weeping willows, office workers and visitors join street entertainers, seagulls and ducks for lunch in the sun.
