Ōtautahi Christchurch

Ōtautahi Christchurch is the gateway to the South Island and home to spectacular experiences. Make some time to play and discover hidden gems around every corner.

It is a city founded with an inquisitive and curious spirit, from our first Māori explorers to our earliest European settlers. It was here Ernest Rutherford started rethinking physics, Kate Sheppard forged rights for women, and Margaret Mahy created new worlds for children.

This is a city with a thriving tech sector, world-class universities, and an innovation eco-system like none other. A city with a revitalised centre buzzing with energy, surrounded by the tranquillity of nature.

Ōtautahi Christchurch is centrally located on the eastern side of New Zealand’s South Island and is the international and domestic hub for all major travel routes around the South Island.

Christchurch International Airport is just 10 kilometres or 15 minutes’ drive from central Christchurch. Regular taxi and shuttle services run between the airport and the central city, and hire car options are available in the terminal.

Regular flights connect Christchurch to 15 regional destinations around New Zealand. Direct international flights arrive into Christchurch International Airport from Singapore, China, Australia, Fiji and Rarotonga, connecting directly with destinations throughout Asia, Europe, USA, South America and the Middle East.

The following link provides all the information you need to plan your visit, and includes information about public transport, getting to and from the airport and maps.
