“Damaged but not out”
Reviewed 21 January 2012

Beautiful buildings that have unfortunately suffered like most of Christchurch from the many quakes over the last 15 months however I thing and certainly hope, they will repair and bring back to the original. This has been a major tourist attraction in the past so I am sure they will do everything they can to save the sight
