Tonight the GETAWAY crew visit the South Island’s largest city, Christchurch. Jules visits an Australian town which is fast becoming renowned for its surf and food.
Christchurch is a flat city which makes it ideal for cycling. The city has many purpose-built cycle ways that wind their way through big green parks, pretty gardens and alongside the Avon River that gently meanders through the city centre. Christchurch Bike Tours’ two-hour tours show you what would take at least four hours on foot.
Back in Australia, Jules stops by the small town of Albany which grew around a port on the southern coast of Western Australia. It was the state’s first European settlement and is a popular holiday centre. Its harbours, rivers and estuaries offer fishing and sailing, and beaches and national parks provide lots of amusement options. Albany is quickly becoming a major player in the west’s food and wine stakes, dominated by the beautiful Margaret River area.
Also in tonight’s episode, Ben journey’s into the Amazon jungle; Natalie explores the Gold Coast by walkway and tips on the best Easter getaways on offer in each Australian state.
