AA Traveller has complete travel information on things to do and things to see in Canterbury. Browse our Hot Deals and free holiday vouchers.

Canterbury is home to many districts - Kaikoura, Hurunui, Waimakariri, Selwyn, Ashburton, South Canterbury, Mackenzie, Banks Peninsula, Waimate, as well as the city of Christchurch.
Kaikoura is where the mountains meet the sea. Experience the marine life - see the giant sperm whale, the world's largest variety of pelagic birds, or swim with the acrobatic dusky dolphins.
Within the Hurunui region lies Hanmer Springs, a scenic alpine and thermal village offering a multitude of exciting challenges - from bungy jumping to jet boating, forest walks to mountain biking. The Waipara wine region offers plenty of opportunities to sample a variety of excellent wines.
The Waimakariri District has safe beaches and braided rivers, fishing, walks, scenic countryside, crafts and museums.
Selwyn District extends from the edge of Christchurch to Arthur's Pass National Park and the main divide of the Southern Alps mountain range. The district is known for its wineries, golf courses, high-country lakes and rivers.
The Ashburton District is home to an array of adventurous pursuits - skiing, hot-air ballooning and jet boating. For a more relaxed pace, visit a historic high-country sheep station or enjoy a round of golf.
Attractive towns, lush pasture, rolling green hills and braided rivers make up the South Canterbury District. It is home to the country's largest Maori rock collection and many scenic and cultural activities.
The Mackenzie region is renowned for its scenic beauty and the hospitality of its high-country people. It is home to Aoraki/ Mt Cook, the highest peak in New Zealand. Enjoy lake cruises, heli-skiing, star gazing, or scenic flights over the Southern Alps.
Step back into Maori, French, British and whaling history when visiting Canterbury's oldest village, Akaroa on Banks Peninsula. See the rare Hector's dolphin, or go for one of the many walks ranging from one hour to four days.
Waimate, just south of Timaru, is home to New Zealand's largest wallabies. Visitors can enjoy a variety of native bushwalks located close to town.
