There are plenty of exciting things happening here, the central city is really coming back to life and the internationally renowned Christchurch Adventure Park is set to reopen next month after the Port Hills fires. “It really is a place that has something for everyone. As the international gateway to the South Island of New Zealand, we know that it’s the iconic imagery of the South Island that encourages most visitors to come to New Zealand in the first place!”
