Location Directory

Christchurch offers mountains to sea within an hour of the central city. From Christchurch, you’ll find the sparkling Pacific Ocean, the majestic Southern Alps and an ancient volcanic peninsula all within driving distance.

The wider Canterbury region is a haven for those seeking incredible scenery, from lush vineyards and wild coastlines to sky-piercing mountains and pristine glacial lakes. As an off-season destination for the northern hemisphere, Christchurch also boasts less rainfall and more sunshine hours than other major centres in ​New Zealand.

    Why Christchurch and Canterbury?

    Within an hour from the city, productions can be filming at a sea port, wheat fields, alpine environments, on braided rivers, surf breaks, rolling hills, farm plains, lakes, geographic rock, historic buildings, English gardens, sleepy little town centres, sheltered bays and so much more.
