Christchurch is a city for those in the know. Yes it’s a wonderful launchpad to the South Island; but it is also one of the world’s coolest cities in its own right. Here are some of our suggestions:

Art Walk

Christchurch has a great reputation for its street art and inspiring art installations all throughout the city. In the inner city of Christchurch seek out Antony Gormley either in the Avon River, or in the Arts Centre. Try not to notice one of Martin Creed’s works adorning Christchurch’s Art Gallery. The Christchurch Art Gallery or CoCa contemporary gallery are certainly a must for your visit, particularly seeing as they are both less than a five minute walk from The Tack Rooms.
