Christchurch is known as the Garden City, and for good reason. Scattered throughout the city and its suburbs are many beautiful public parks and other green spaces, with the jewel in Christchurch’s crown being Hagley Park, situated within easy walking distance of the city’s central business district. Christchurch is seen as New Zealand’s most English city, and is famed for its vibrant arts scene, dramatic scenery and the beautiful Canterbury region, all capped off by the Southern Alps mountain range, which is visible from most parts of the city.

Christchurch is New Zealand’s second-largest city and with its international airport, serves as the gateway to the south island, with extensive transport links to all the major centres and tourist attractions that the south island is justifiably famous for, with New Zealand’s adventure playgrounds of Queenstown and Wanaka just a short flight away.

Since the earthquakes in September 2010 and February 2011, Christchurch has undergone considerable redevelopment, and has seen the central business district and the rest of the city undergo significant rebuilding, and while this is a long-term project, the progress that has been made allowed the city to host a number of games for the 2015 Cricket World Cup.

There are many tourist attractions in Christchurch, International Antarctic Centre , Orana Park and Willowbank Wildlife Park. The local tourist authority’s website  has many more ideas for places to visit and activities in Christchurch and across the Canterbury region.

Housing / Accommodation

Since the earthquakes, Christchurch has been steadily rebuilding and improving its housing stock, as there are accommodation shortages in some areas of the city. Crown Christchurch’s experienced and helpful staff have built up extensive links with the local business community, and they will be able to help you find accommodation to suit your needs.


Christchurch’s public transport bus network covers the whole city, operated by Metro and Red Bus, and there are limited public bus services across the wider Canterbury region. Christchurch has an international airport which provides services throughout New Zealand using the Air Chathams, Air New Zealand and Jetstar networks.


There are over 150 schools in Christchurch, with combined enrolments of some 57,500 primary and secondary school children. Since the earthquakes in September 2010 and February 2011, the city and surrounding area’s educational establishments have undergone considerable reorganisation with a number of schools being merged, and others moving to new sites. Because of this, please refer to the Ministry of Education to help you choose. With regards to higher education, there are two universities in Christchurch, the University of Canterbury and Lincoln University.


Christchurch has a main hospital and all the health services you would expect to find in a major city are provided by the Canterbury DHB and a number of private companies throughout the city.


Christchurch’s cultural diversity, vibrant art and creative scene make for an established social environment, with constant opportunities to meet people from all walks of life. Because of this unique atmosphere, expatriates do not have trouble to blend into the wider Christchurch community. Opportunities to form closer-knit groups arise through children’s school activities and events, as well as through sports teams, sporting fixtures, and hobby or special interest groups. There are also a number of reputable singles networks in the local area that arrange sightseeing trips, restaurant dinners and weekend events. There are a number of organisations available to provide professional networking opportunities, these include Fit 4 Business and Elite6 Business.
