Places to Visit near Canterbury Region


Church of The Good Shepherd

Designed to give the impression of quiet strength and simplicity, The Church Of The Good Shepherd embodies the essential qualities of the early settlers who endured the tough Mackenzie Country environment: modest, hardy, strong, loyal. Today, the setting of this majestic spot entices visitors from all over the world. <br><br> Opened in 1935 the Church of the Good Shepherd is the sole church in Lake Tekapo and continues to be a place of worship for local residents holding Sunday services (as well as weddings, funerals and baptisms). It was designed by Christchurch architect R.S.D. Harman, based on sketches by a local artist, Esther Hope. There is usually a guide present during these hours: 9 am - 5 pm during summer, and 10 am - 4pm in winter.

Cardboard Cathedral

It was designed by the Japanese architect Shigeru Ban, working with local firm Warren and Mahoney, and cost under $6 million. The building was constructed from 98 60-centimetre-diameter cardboard tubes. The site was previously occupied by the church of St John the Baptist, which was demolished following the 2011 earthquake.

Canterbury Museum

Rare Maori artefacts and the stories behind them will fascinate you. See the famous Paua Shell House recreated in the Museum. Walk down the Christchurch Street and be transported back in time with the sights and sounds of pioneering days. Discover the heroic age of exploration and discovery in the Antarctic subcontinent. <br><br> The museum store selects the best New Zealand-inspired arts, crafts and souvenirs. From paua to penguins, pottery to pounamu, the friendly staff will help to find the perfect gift. <br><br> The cafe offers views of the Botanic Gardens for you to enjoy. Choose from a selection of delicious sweet and savoury goodies and expertly made espresso coffee. Relax, refresh and enjoy.

185 Empty Chairs

The concept of The Empty Chair depicting the loss of someone has been used repeatedly across time and cultures. <br><br> This installation consists of 185 white chairs, each one different, representing the individuality of those who died as a result of the Christchurch earthquake on 22nd February 2011. <br><br> The chairs are all ordinary, everyday chairs that have been hand-painted with two coats of paint, and placed on 185 square metres of readylawn. They were initially placed on the site of Oxford Terrace Baptist Church for the first anniversary of the earthquake, but have been on the current site, St Pauls Trinity Pacific Presbyterian Church, diagonally opposite the CTV building site, since October 2012. <br><br> The installation has become a place for people to reflect on the earthquake and the the loss of lives, livelihood and way of life.
