Of course we had a look around the town of Christchurch itself.  The Botanicgardens are excellent and we spent a good number of hours exploring there.

In Greymouth we had a great time on adirt trike track.  The girls when in an amphibous vehicle, while Dad and Michael tookthe trikes.  The tracks was very very rough and crossed a few creeks - so we reallyneeded the wet weather gear
