If you are looking for a day trip or a few days stay not far from Christchurch the Banks Peninsula & Akaroa area is very scenic and interesting with lots of places to explore along the way. Leaving Christchurch I would go via hwy75 stop at Tai Tapu (The Store or shops opposite) pop briefly into Birdlings Beach , Stop Little River nice cafés ,two non touristy NZ arts & craft shops .Carry on to the Hill Top Pub great views across Akaroa harbour.From there simply make your way to Akaroa.
Google Akaroa lots of thing to do in & around the area and other spots to see on the Peninsula itself depending on ones time.
