We are arriving on a month long visit to NZ, starting in Christchurch on 24th July - have been hearing horror stories of the "red zone" and that large parts of the city are now closed or cordoned off. We are backpacking with the DDs 9 and 7 and would love a clearer idea of the situation without the drama!

Equally if anyone fancies an impromptu meet up that would be fantastic!

Thanks x

Try looking here

Most of the damage is central city and eastern suburbs, I think there's a map on the page linked above. Also have a look at the Lonely Planet article.

Thanks Zachary - Will have a read of that - have been looking at the Lonely Planet Site but there is nothing like the words of real life people for the real picture!
