A lovely city with nice botanical gardens. The downtown is very walkable. I liked it a lot!

Akaroa is a beautiful town on the Banks Peninsula, near Christchurch, in the South Island of NZ. While the remainder of the country was settled by the English, Akaroa was settled by the French. This means it's a town filled with the lilt of French, French restaurants and a very different feel compared to the rest of NZ.
