Christchurch's cafes, restaurants and bars take pride in serving fresh local produce and wine.
If there is no time to refer to a dining guide, simply head for 'The Strip' along Oxford Terrace. Cafes, restaurants and bars nudge up against each other, sharing the convivial, food-scented city air.
Christchurch Tramway, Willowbank Wildlife Reserve, Sharvin Lodge, Christchurch Gondola and Nga Hau E Wha National Marae offer highly unique dining experiences.
Local wines are excellent - the Canterbury region is best known for its Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc.
