About Christchurch Suburbs

Christchurch's suburbs surround the city centre and spread out and over the Port Hills to the east, around Banks Peninsula, along the eastern coastline, inland toward the Southern Alps, and south toward rural land. With the exception of the Port Hills, most suburbs are located on flat land among many parks and gardens.

Many suburbs have been affected by earthquakes of 2010 and 2011 with some undergoing repairs or redevelopment. Others have been red-zoned meaning they are uninhabitable and will not be redeveloped. Plans for these suburbs include making them parks or other green spaces.
