Buying in Christchurch

About Christchurch


Christchurch is a great place to live, work, visit and do business with a population of over 350,000 Christchurch is the gateway to the South Island.


Located on the East Coast of the South Island, Christchurch, just like the rest of New Zealand, is a city of contrasts.


Although the Christchurch region has been severely challenged by two significant earthquakes in September 2010 and February 2011, its resilient population's commitment to the rebuilding process gives it the chance to be one of the most exciting cities anywhere.
