Interesting history


Archaeologists suggest the site of today's city was first settled by moa-hunting Maori around 1250.

 

The 'first four ships' of European settlers arrived from 1850, creating the city of Christchurch around a central cathedral (which was partially demolished in the 2010/11 earthquakes) and a large central park (Hagley Park).
