Setting sail from Lyttelton (Christchurch)

A garden city where punts glide down the Avon River, you'd be forgiven for thinking you were still in the UK when arriving into Christchurch, New Zealand's most English of cities. A gateway to the country's famously scenic South Island, its peaceful parks and quiet streets still show signs on the earthquakes in 2010 and 2011 as the recovery continues. Lyttelton is just over 7 miles away; originally established as a landing point for Christchurch-bound seafarers, it serves the same purpose for visitors today.

Don't miss

Traverse the South Island's mighty Southern Alps on the TranzAlpine Express, one of the world’s most scenic rail journeys, between Christchurch and Greymouth.
