Where is it?


Christchurch with its clean air and pure water offers a lovely balance between historic and contemporary, early settlers architecture amidst thriving bustling city with colour atmoshere and world class attractions including The Antarctic Centre. Christchurch won "garden city of the world" several years ago, and has excellent shopping especially with British pounds. Its a great base for discovering wider area ie Kaikoura with its giant sperm whale and acrobatic dusky dolphins that you can swim with. The South Island offers spectacular scenery and many scenes of "Lord Of The Rings" was filmed less than an hour away.
