Canterbury as many would say is one of New Zealand's most scenic regions.
From the majestic Southern Alps to the flat Canterbury Plains its terrain is diverse.
Christchurch is the main city of the region and the surrounding towns of Timaru, Ashburton, Fairlie and Tekapo to name a few.
Whether it be the bustle of the city and coast line around Christchurch which is slowly rebuilding after the 2011 earthquake or the peace and serenity of the lakes in the area such as Lake Tekapo, you can be assured of finding just what you are looking for in this area of contrasts.
Stretching from Kaikoura in the north to the Waimate region in the south the every changing scenery of this region will delight tourists and locals alike.
