Christchurch: City in South Island, New Zealand
Christchurch is the largest city in the South Island of New Zealand and the seat of the Canterbury Region. The Christchurch urban area lies on the South Island's east coast, just north of Banks Peninsula. The urban area is home to 404,500 residents, making it New Zealand's third-most populous urban area behind Auckland and Wellington, and the territorial authority has 377,200 people which makes it the second-most populous city, as Wellington city is less populous despite having a larger urban population. The Avon River flows through the centre of the city, with an urban park located along its banks.
