Canterbury prides itself as one of the most accessible regions in New Zealand. Home to the second largest city in the country, Christchurch, the region has everything you need for an authentic Kiwi experience.
Christchurch is the gateway to the Canterbury region and the spectacular experiences you will have within the South Island of New Zealand. Explore the range of activities and attractions we have on offer.
Phil Keoghan, kiwi host of US reality show The Amazing Race, is keen to share secrets from the place he calls home - Christchurch and Canterbury, New Zealand. He hopes that visitors will get to experience the best Christchurch and Canterbury have to offer.
The way to get the best out of a destination is to look for local knowledge and hear insiders' tips. Travellers to Christchurch and Canterbury can now count on a trusted source of local knowledge to help them make the most of their time in this special region.
"The Amazing Race has taken me all over the world to some fascinating places but there is still nothing like coming home to New Zealand, and, of course, Canterbury has a special place in my heart because this is where my folks live. Each time I visit here I am reminded just how special this place is and I'm very excited about sharing some of my homegrown knowledge of what the South Island has to offer with our visitors," says Phil.
