places of interest around christchurch includes banks peninsular/akaroa (french heritage area), arthur's pass national park where you can find many good trails. i did one day-trail called avalanche peak where you can see alpine parrot near the summit ridge. mueller hut trail would be interesting, it offers you close view of mt. cook. i guess rick b (the one who "jumped mt. cook) could offer you more update info on this.
besides these, of course there are the great walks like milford track, franz josef glacier etc etc.. there are just so many tramps to do in NZ and so little time... and enjoy your trip
