Canterbury, a unique combination of supremely beautiful and different districts, and the city of Christchurch, sits on the East coast of New Zealand’s South Island. It offers premium panoramic landscapes formed by the Southern Alps. Between the mountains and the sea, the vast Canterbury plains are patchworked with the patterns of rural life. Christchurch, the biggest city of the South Island buzzes with exciting festivals, theatre, modern art galleries, great shopping and award-winning attractions. Explore the contrasting offers of both urban and rural lifestyle – live and work in the city, ski on one of the multitudinal ski fields during the winter season, soak away the stress in thermal pools at Hanmer Springs, go eco-watching in Akaroa or Kaikoura, and get in touch with nature by tramping and camping by forested parks. Canterbury has warm summers and cool to cold winters; it is also known to have hot norwesterly winds blowing during warmer months.


Within the gentle curve of the South Canterbury coastline the Timaru District covers 2,602 square kilometres of diverse landscape.

Attractive towns, lush pasture, rolling downlands, green hills and clean rivers lie in the lee of New Zealand’s magnificent Southern Alps in the west.

Timaru boasts a beautiful and relaxing and central business district linked to Caroline Bay. The quality of life within the South Canterbury region is a drawcard for many people who enjoy the outdoors, and a wide range of year round activities and scenic beauty. Its proximity to world class mountain sports and challenging alpine areas attracts people such as professionals.

Over 42,000 residents enjoy life in Timaru District. Moderately-priced real estate, good medical services, excellent educational facilities, an abundance of sporting and recreational facilities and a friendly community all contribute to make Timaru District a welcoming and attractive destination. Enterprising businesses keep the workforce stable.
