Join us in the heart of a new regenerating city to experience the energy of Rotary. Where every age, race and religion come together to build a better place.

 
 

Nau Mai (Welcome) to Christchurch - host of the Regeneration Conference!

 
We assume that visitors to this page are Rotarians who agree that Rotary is a great organisation. Well, let us tell you that, after being ranked among the top 19 world "relax, explore or learn" destinations, and with a solid focus on Regeneration, Rotary+Christchurch is simply "irresistible". But don't take our word for it - see below (edition.cnn.com/travel/article/places-to-visit-2019). 
 
 
For a complete list of things to see and do in and around Christchurch, see www.christchurchnz.com.
 
If you still need persuading, the 2019 Regeneration conference includes such Rotary speakers as Rotary International President 2019-20 Mark Daniel Maloney and Past RI Director and Treasurer and current Trustee of The Rotary Foundation 2018-22 Per Hoyen.
 
Irresistable! Block out your diary now, check the tour options available while you are here and get those early-bird air tickets sorted...
 

Discuss Rotary's Regeneration amid Christchurch's Regeneration

Enjoy great speakers, including Mark Maloney and Per Hoyen. Focus on the changing face of Rotary in our countries, involving community groups, seminars for all age groups and tours. See projects showing Rotary in Action, rebuilding our community.
 
Christchurch is known as the “Garden City” of New Zealand and spring will be here when you arrive. A very beautiful time of year to appreciate our environment.
 
We are still recovering from the 2010/11 earthquakes and their 10,000+ aftershocks (thankfully behind us) and, alongside the many new and rebuilt facilities, visitors will see vacant lots brightened by murals and a number of damaged buildings awaiting repair/replacement.
 
We are also now recovering from the recent terrorist attack, which was so uncharacteristic of New Zealand society and which, we are determined to show, strengthened rather than weakened our community bonds.
 
The conference venue is our iconic Town Hall, an architectural award-winning building situated in the heart of the city on the banks of the Avon River, which opened in March 2019 after $150million earthquake repairs.
 
Christchurch is a foodie heaven boasting over 900 cafes, restaurants and cool bars. We have wonderful New Zealand wineries on our doorstep and fantastic local craft beers.
 
Christchurch is the gateway to the scenic South Island with a variety of activities to enjoy. Consider extending your stay to see the country.
 
Plan to arrive early and/or to stay late, to experience our revitalised and regenerated city, hospitality and environs and to travel further to enjoy the unique New Zealand landscape.
 
 
 
The Venue
The venue of the conference is the fully refurbished and iconic Christchurch Town Hall on the banks of the Avon river, located 5-10 minutes walk from central city accommodation and Cathedral Square.
