GALLERY | Out & About

Just looking in the NZ forum and it appears there are no Christchurch pics. I did a thread on Christchurch a few years ago but its since vanished.

Does anyone have any pics of Christchurch?

It snowed there a few days ago - quite deep aparently.
Also it has a new art gallery/museum in the center of town which is quite interesting.

I've got a few pics from when I went to the south island in the last holidays (about 6 weeks ago). I took 320 pics in total, but only a fraction of those are pics of Christchurch. Might post some soon if I get time.

Woo im going to be useful! I was in christchurch over summer.

Fancy art gallery.


Giant icecream cone made out of weed.


Nice little street with tram line.


Nice buildings!


Looks like the uk


I love how the new building comes out of the old one in the last pic. I didnt get any good photos of it though.
The rest of the photos are on my website . I really really didn't take enough of christchurch.
Great place besides everyone telling me how english it is.

Yes. They do tend to over do it sometimes with the ''more English than England'' thing. It would be nice if they changed the focus to more of a Kiwi-cosmopolitan with a touch of England.

That's Clarendon Tower, and their basic design guideline was to integrate well with the existing building, as to not impact the old architecture too much (Christchurch conservatives for you). And that's a really nice photo of the art gallery you took - postcard worthy definitely.

And many people in Christchurch hate the English thing, me included. I mean, I'm happy for it to go so far, but I think we've left that behind long ago. Makes us sound so mono-cultural, sedate, boring even.

Snowfall wasn't too bad, its passed now and it was actually quite warm yesterday.

Christchurch Cathedral at the very heart city.



The Chalice - A year 2000 sculpture by Neil Dawson. It is representing leaves of native trees being swept up in the hot nor'west wind that blows across Christchurch and Canterbury.



Market trading in Cathedral Square.

Sorry about the size of the last two pictures, I need to work out how to enlarge another time.

My first picture post

New Zealanders have a real bee in their bonnet about the weather. The rest of the world laughs at us because of it! Well, they do in the UK, especially anything to do with wind

What an awesome city.It looks like the perfect size to me.I really hope to go there sometime in the future.Ive done the North Island twice,once for pleasure in 1995 and I just got back from a 1 month study course a few weeks ago.But not the south.I really want to go after seeing these pictures.

I like the size of the city.It looks like Adelaide but with similar and different natural features like the glacier,the surf beaches and the moutain area near the sea.

Best of all.Its green and has kept alot of its heritage,unlike Auckland which is green but has alot of bad modern architecture mixed in with some nice architecture too,in its CBD.
