185 Empty White Chairs - Earthquake Memorial
#4 of 71 Sights & Landmarks in Christchurch
City of Christchurch is very different, most important sites are earthquake related, so pay a tribute to all the memorial of earthquake.
NZ is a fantastic country and I have seen so many incredible sights in my 3 week holiday here - but this memorial will remain with me.
Mona Vale
#5 of 71 Sights & Landmarks in Christchurch
The surroundings were magical with Punts gliding past on the Avon River, a goose and her goslings wandering around and a view of the recently restored stately home and well groomed gardens.
Amazing views wherever you turn....no wonder the wedding party was still lingering around- the photographer kept finding more new angles and backdrops to present his charges at their best...

Cardboard Cathedral
#7 of 71 Sights & Landmarks in Christchurch
This temporary structure is an engineering marvel and well worth the visit especially if you first view the earthquake destruction of the original cathedral.
We had a very lovely lady chat to us about the cathedral, the church that was on the site prior and living through the Christchurch earthquake.
Taylors Mistake - Awaroa / Godley Head Walk
#8 of 71 Sights & Landmarks in Christchurch

Canterbury Earthquake National Memorial
#10 of 71 Sights & Landmarks in Christchurch
It's well worth costing this memorial, including walking to St Michael's All Angels historic church nearby, and then to view the memorial from across the river.
This is a memorial site that Christchurch should be truly proud of.
Peacock Fountain
#11 of 71 Sights & Landmarks in Christchurch
Restored to its former glory, it makes a stunning view on entry to the gardens.
Inasmuch as it's at the entry to the Botanic Gardens, next to the Christchurch Museum, and at an i-SITE, it's hard to miss.
Bridge of Remembrance
#12 of 71 Sights & Landmarks in Christchurch
Any monument or site that is dedicated to remembering in my books is worth a visit solely out of respect.
Newly opened, one of the landmarks fully restored

Godley Head is on the CH360 trail, and encompases great views, wildlife (a penguin colony at Boulder Bay), and interesting military history with WW2 Coastal Artillery positions.
History with a stunning view
Victoria Street Clock Tower
#16 of 71 Sights & Landmarks in Christchurch
It is a very neat clock tower and a local landmark as we heard people on their phones telling people where they were and planning to meet up with friends at the clock tower.
Moved to its present site on Victoria Street in 1930 it went under some restoration, repairs, refurbishment and enhancement along its existence.
Christchurch Cathedral
#17 of 71 Sights & Landmarks in Christchurch
There are many spots through which to view this once majestic cathedral, including a charming little shelter covered with greenery and flowers.
Love coming to the cathedral, very sad how it was demolished from the earthquake but still a great historic site to go visit.
