Day 8Explore Christchurch

Post breakfast, begin your tour of Christchurch, Cardboard Cathedral, Re: START Container Mall and Botanic Gardens.

The largest city on New Zealand’s South Island, Christchurch is traditionally the most English of towns in New Zealand. With a climate similar to that of southern England, the town is home to gothic cathedrals, sprawling gardens and old-time establishments.

Two earthquakes shook Christchurch in 2011 and Christchurch seems to have rebuilt itself, carefully balancing the traditional with the modern.

Built out of industrial cardboard and reclaimed wood from the earthquake, the Christchurch Transitional Cathedral, locally known as the Cardboard Cathedral, has replaced the neo-gothic structure that once was the focal point of the city. Visual simplistic and bold the church is definitely worth a visit.

The Re: START Mall, too built as a temporary structure, built out of shipping containers, during the aftermath of the earthquakes, grew to become one of the most iconic examples of the post-earthquake innovation that Christchurch has seen in the last decade.

Found over 150 years ago, The Christchurch Botanic Gardens lie at the heart of the city, and a visit to Christchurch remains incomplete without a stroll within its gardens. Egged by the planting of a single English Oak, the garden now boasts of a spectacular rose collection, a special portion nurtured for only native spices and a conservatory complex hosing everything from cacti and succulents to tropical orchids and carnivorous plants.

Lunch at Little India Restaurant.

End the day with a visit to the Antartic Centre, experience the South Pole, tactile and interactive this is really a one of a kind experience.
