Christchurch is the biggest city in the South Island of New Zealand and the seat of the Canterbury Region. The Christchurch urban territory lies on the South Island's east drift, only north of Banks Peninsula.
The Avon River moves through the focal point of the city, with a urban stop situated along its banks. At the demand of the Deans siblings—whose ranch was the most punctual settlement in the territory—the stream was named after the River Avon in Scotland, which ascends in the Ayrshire slopes close to where their granddad's homestead was found.
Archeological proof has shown that the Christchurch territory was first settled by people around 1250. The new settlement was laid out in a framework design focused on Cathedral Square.
