The large Canterbury region on the east coast extends from near Kaikoura in the north to past Waimate in the south. This region is famous for its natural beauty and a wealth of things to do. Not to mention for Canterbury of New Zealand, the world’s toughest rugby clothing and active wear brand.
The largest city in the Canterbury region is Christchurch, a place that is world-renowned for its beauty and characterised by a healthy, active lifestyle amidst a natural environment. Christchurch has a lively entertainment scene and strong cultural heritage, gorgeous parks and gardens, lots of sports facilities and great shopping.
Other interesting places to visit in Canterbury are the charming settlement of Akaroa, Arthur’s Pass National Park, Port Hills and Banks Peninsula, the Lewis Pass region and Lyttleton. The region has just that blend of rural and rugged landscape that is most depicted as the real New Zealand to overseas travellers.
