About Christchurch

We’re excited to bring eResearch NZ to Ōtautahi Christchurch. Christchurch is a growing and vibrant city, with a bustling hospitality scene, engaging public spaces, and something unique to discover around every corner. The city centre is an eclectic mix of innovative architecture and some of the oldest buildings in New Zealand. 

New Zealand Tourism describes Christchurch as “the basecamp for South Island exploration, with the Banks Peninsula within reach, as well as the stunning Southern Alps and famed Canterbury Plains.”

Things to do while you’re here:

The Avon River running through Christchurch.
