The McRent depot Christchurch lies at the east cost of the southern island and is the perfect starting point for your motorhome holidays in New Zealand.
In 2010 and 2011 heavy earthquakes shook Christchurch and destroyed the town centre amongst others. Now you find there the “Re:START Mall”, a cheerful, colourful shopping mall made of containers. Also the ChristChurch Cathedral was destroyed, but the ruins are still evidence of its former glory. As a provisional replacement the Cardboard Cathedral was built, the worlds’ only cathedral, that is partially built of cardboards.
In Christchurch other objects of interest are the restored tramway and the Botanical Garden, where you can do a small boat tour.
