The population given in this article, 45,000, is way off the mark. Wikipedia lists the "territorial" population as 414,000 and the "urban" population as 360,765. I'm aware that the area is composed of many neighborhoods, and maybe the 45,000 figure is referring to the Christchurch CBD neighborhood, but the number is misleading in the context of this article.

suggestion for "off the beaten path" :
- Lyttelton Harbour - lots of funky wee cafes and shops, a farmer's market weekends. Also lovely drive/boat trip from there round to Governor's Bay.

Also, warning about crowds in Dec/Jan is laughable. The only places Chch sees crowds is the shopping malls (which hopefully most tourists won't be concerning themselves with).

Festivals: World Buskers Festival is worth a mention.
