Christchurch,
New Zealand
Christchurch is the largest city in the South Island of New Zealand, situated about one third of
the way down the island's east coast. The city was named after
Christ Church college in
Oxford, whilst the River Avon, which flows through the centre of the city, was named after the
Scottish Avon in Ayrshire.
In the past, major Antarctic expeditions, including both Scott's and Shackleton's, have used
Christchurch as their starting point.
