Recovering from the earthquakes of 2010 and 2011 was no easy task, but Christchurch has faced the challenges with aplomb.
Get out of town with these interesting Christchurch side-trips: Akaroa (Dolphin & Whale Watching & Swim with Dolphins). There's much more to do: take a memorable ride with TranzAlpine Train, take an in-depth tour of Canterbury Museum, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Cardboard Cathedral, and see the interesting displays at International Antarctic Centre.

For photos, traveler tips, and more tourist information, go to the Christchurch driving holiday site .

Perth, Australia to Christchurch is an approximately 9.5-hour flight. You'll lose 4 hours traveling from Perth to Christchurch due to the time zone difference. In October, Christchurch is little chillier than Perth - with highs of 20°C and lows of 6°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 4th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
