Please do not expect warm summer weather. Sometimes we do have warm days, especially in norwesterlies, and even in winter. But actually it is rather chilly, with temperatures not over 10°C. Today we even have a cold snap, and the further south you go the colder it gets. Pack everything, from T-shirts to a warm anorak and a beanie!

Travel Tips for Christchurch

The Garden City

by Kakapo2

Christchurch prides itself as the Garden City. And more: In 1996, Christchurch was acknowledged as the outstanding garden city from 620 international entries and in 1997, was judged Overall Winner of Major Cities in the Nations in Bloom International Competition to become “Garden City of the World”.

Although some people use their gardens as dumps or carparks, or car wreck yards, most people really care about the green spaces surrounding their houses. I have listed several properties in my mind which I always look at when I drive past because the owners do such great jobs.

A great plus for gardeners is that most of New Zealand’s native shrubs and trees are evergreen, so the gardens do not even look dead in winter.

From September to March you can even book a garden tour to extraordinarily beautiful private gardens.

This company, for example, offers such tours. As they are not daily and, as mentioned, not during the whole year, please check availability. A 3 hour tour costs NZ$ 40 (as April 2008).

During the Festival of Flowers in February, this company operates official Prize Winning Garden Tours in conjunction with the Canterbury Horticultural Society and the Christchurch Beautifying Association.

The best (and cost-free) garden you can visit is the fantastic Botanic Garden where you will find flowering plants even in winter, and some exotic trees with red leaves in autumn (whereas the “normal” exotic trees only get yellow leaves because the day and night temperatures do not differ enough to turn them red). In spring parts of Hagley Park display fantastic masses of flowers, especially daffodils.

Another great place is Mona Vale.

Riccarton Bush is the only place in the city with original native kahikatea bush. And there are parks dotted all over the place, Victoria Square being a nice one in the inner city. The pockets of native forest in the Port Hills are also worth a visit.

But back to the “real” gardens.

Christchurch has, as mentioned earlier in the tour tip, the Festival of Flowers in February, and last year (2007) the City Council purchased the right to host the Ellerslie International Flower Show (the first time in March 2009) which has taken place in Auckland and Manukau up to then.

Town Crier

by fishandchips

This old english method of having a bloke yelling the news pre newspaper days was trialled a few years ago as a tourism stunt - and it stuck. The Town Crier of Christchurch screams a few items of interest using a very random schedule. When he isn't doing the yelling thing he wanders about the Cathedral Square to chat with visitors and provide a few photo opportunities for those searching for that unusual shot for the trip album.

Sign of the Kiwi

by HuggieSam

The Sign of the Kiwi is a great place to stop in at after a walk on the hills or just on a nice day. The staff are really friendly and there are plenty of options on the menu so you're bound to find something you like.

Mount Cook National Park

by keeweechic

Mount Cook National Park is where you will find New Zealand's tallest mountain, Mt Cook (or Aoraki). The area also has the largest glacier in the country, Tasman Glacier. At the foot of the mountain is Mt Cook village and is the starting point for several hiking trails.

The Maori name, Aoraki, means Sky Father and Mt Cook stands at 3,755 making it the highest peak in Australasia. The Mt Cook National Park is a world heritage area and contains 22 of New Zealand’s 27 highest peaks. It is basically 700 sq kms of glaciers, snow and granite and an incredible area for flora and fauna.

McDonalds Rent-a-Car

by frankcanfly

Pam, 'Kiwi', recommended this company for auto rentals in NZ. They are small, but nationwide and family-owned company based in Christchurch.

I'm currently making a reservation with them, I'll let you know if they are as good as she says.
