About Christchurch

With just under 400,000 residents, Christchurch is the biggest city on the South Island of New Zealand, and is the third biggest in the country. Christchurch is also the oldest established city in New Zealand, and thrives in the farming industry, primarily thanks to its location along the banks of the Avon river. If you are thinking of moving to New Zealand, Christchurch is certainly a destination to consider.

The Suburbs of Christchurch

Avonside, as its name suggests, is situated right beside the Avon river. This is one of the oldest suburbs in Christchurch. As an inner suburb, Avonside is close to the central business district so is ideal for those commuting into the city for work.

Sydenham lies just south of the city centre and is a largely residential area, however there are small businesses and retail stores available.

Wigram Park is also a  location to consider when moving to Christchurch as it has plenty of nearby local amenities and home to the Canterbury Agricultural Park. This suburb is very close to the industrial estates in Sockburn, and retail is available in the neighbouring suburb of Hornby.

Sumner is a coastal seaside suburb named after the 1849 Archbishop of Canterbury John Bird Sumner. Situated in a scenic coastal valley, Sumner is the perfect location if surfing, swimming and boating are at the top of your priorities.

Getting Around Christchurch

Christchurch has a metro system which covers bus services operating throughout the city and suburbs, as well as the local ferry, which crosses Lyttelton harbour, running between Lyttelton to Diamond Harbour. All services within the Metro system can be paid for using a metrocard. The metrocard offers discounted prices for under 18s and free off-peak travel for senior citizens.

There is also the option of using Christchurch Tramway, which operates a one-way circuit around the city centre. The Tram is mainly a tourist attraction, but is useful for some commuters who want to purchase a season ticket.

Things to do in Christchurch

Like most large cities, Christchurch has plenty to offer. There are a variety of museums including the Air Force Museum and the Canterbury Museum, and Quake City offers an interactive re-telling of the disasters of the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes. For entertainment, Christchurch has multiple theatres showcasing various forms of art. The city is often nicknamed ‘garden city’ due to its masses of green space, consisting of many parks and gardens.

Interesting Facts about Christchurch
