The Wilderness base in Christchurch continues to operate normally since the Christchurch earthquake on February 22. While part of the central city is still cordoned off, the wider Christchurch and Canterbury region continues to welcome visitors. Some tourism operators in the central business district are not operating but most operators outside the area are. All services in other parts of Canterbury including favourite destinations such as Akaroa
, Mackenzie Country
and Hanmer Springs
are operating normally. If you're wondering what you can do to help the people of Christchurch, the answer is "visit". Your visit will contribute to the vital funds needed to rebuild this beautiful city. For more information about the earthquake, planning your visit, and what you can do to help, click here
