Canterbury

Experience

The Cantebury Region is located on the East Coast of the South Island, spanning as far north as Kaikoura and down to Makikihi in the South. The main city is Christchurch and with a population of about 370,000 it is the largest city in the South Island. The city has a great international airport making access to the surrounding regions fairly easy via bus, plane or even helicopter. 

The region has a lot of farm country on the Cantebury Plains before the terrain steepens substantially as it rises up to the Southern Alps running down the middle of the Island. Many people will venture south toward the lakes of Tekapo, Mount Cook, Wanaka and Queenstown while others explore the city or head north to see the breaching whales in Kaikoura! The region is also home to one of our most famous National parks - Aoraki/Mount Cook National Park.

Regrettably, our content creator seems to enjoy adventuring more than he does finishing this portion of the website. Nonetheless we are working very hard to convince him to hang up his hiking boots for a few weeks and get this finished. Unfortunately for us, he's a master of bushcraft and has thus far eluded our attempts, however he is very fond of chocolate chip cookies so our current plan involves an incredibly long cookie trail starting at the top of the mountain, leading down to the office door and over to his desk. Once inside we will lock the door (leaving him with a generous stash of cookies and tea of course) and hide the key until he is finished. We are very optimistic for this plan, so please bear with us as we are trying our very best to get this page completed soon.

P.S - If anyone has previous experience in luring rogue adventurers back to the office for a few weeks, please get in touch as we could use some tips and tricks!
