Famously known as The Garden City, Christchurch is also a city where the past and present combine in architecture. This makes for a city of things always happening, from the trendy dining and drinking Salt District, to the celebration of the arts at the Christchurch Art Gallery, and the theatre at the Isaac Theatre Royal.
This is a city of great strength and character, of community and redevelopment after the devastating 2011 earthquake. There are parks for running and walking (dogs love the open spaces), and much to do away from the city such as visiting Akaroa and Banks Peninsula.
Unfortunately, there are no house sitters in this location right now.
However, please do check out other house sitters in Canterbury.
