This is rather handsome lectern - big huge eagle which is a symbol of John the Evangelist. It was a gift from the wife of the 1st bishop (Anglican church)
The chapel is to remember the First Bishop of Melanesia - look at the details of Polynesian styled altar, carvings, mats etc
i saw this bridge while walking around the city center. a bridge to remember those involved during the past wars.
A great place to walk around - with its lovely cathedral and a newly installed sculpture - "The Chalice" that was designed by Neil Dawson.
New Regent Street is a traffic-free pedestrian strip full of cafés, restaurants and boutiques. Lots of nice architecture too.
The only thing you have to watch out for now and then is the trams.

His statue stands in Cathedral Square near the cathedral.
The Chief Post Office is quite a landmark itself and you can find it right in Cathedral Square. You can get a good view of it from the top of the cathedral.
Every day at 1 PM, outside the Cathedral in Cathedral Square, the Wizard of Christchurch holds forth with his orations. He is unbelievable
