About Christchurch, New Zealand
Christchurch was founded in 1850 by members of the Church of England, who wanted a little bit of heaven on earth. They succeeded, and today the city takes great pride in its spacious layout and distinctive English-style buildings in elegant grey stone. The River Avon winds through Christchurch, along parks and gardens that cover one third of the city.

Beautiful place that we loved. A trolley will take you around the main sites and give a history. Went punting, or a boat ride, which was wonderful and informative. Took a funicular up I guess a mountain for amazing views. Hint, take the funicular later in the day and then take a bus from there back to the ship. Easier than going all the way back to town.
