"The Canterbury Region" New Zealand Favorite Tip by keeweechic
New Zealand General: 375 reviews and 341 photos
Favorite thing: Canterbury is in the centre of the South Island and contains some of New Zealand's highest mountains. The region is predominantly a flat, broad plain, with the Southern Alps as a backdrop. There are five areas to the region, North Canterbury, Mid Canterbury, South Canterbury, Banks Peninsula and Christchurch. Christchurch is New Zealands 3rd largest city and is almost an English city with its architecture, parks and gardens. Hanmer Springs is an alpine spa village in the northern part of the region where you can lazy in hot thermal pools. Kalkoura is the whale watching capital of New Zealand. Boat companies take tours out to watch and listen for the sperm, hump back and killer whales which swim in the area.
