Travel Guides  

Many travel guides for New Zealand are published. All will have info about Christchurch and Canterbury. These are a few of the well known publishers:

  • Eyewitness  ( DK - Dorling Kinderley )
  • Insight Guides 
  • Fodor's
  • Frommer's
  • Lonely Planet
  • Rick Steves's
  • Rough Guide

The Information Centre, which is currently situated just inside the entrance to the Botanical Gardens alongside the Canterbury Museum, has all the latest information needed for visiting Christchurch, and can help with bookings. 

The airport also has the latest travel guides there too, so you can pick up on arrival.
