The Canterbury Region of New Zealand corresponds to the portion of the South Island to the east of the Southern Alps, from the Waiau River in the north, to the Waitaki River in the south. To the west of the Southern Alps lies the Alpine Fault, a major fault boundary, that passes through the South Island from Fiordland in the south, to the Marlborough Region in the north, where it divides into multiple faults. The Pacific Plate lies to the east of the Alpine Fault and the Australian Plate lies to the west. The Pacific Plate is sliding SSW at about 35mm/yr, relative to the Australian Plate, and rising up 10mm/yr, generating the Southern Alps. The Alpine Fault did not develop until early Miocene times. Ten million years ago the Southern Alps were low hills, and they only became mountainous as recently as 5 million years ago. To the east of the Southern Alps are the Canterbury Plains, formed by the sediment eroded from the Southern Alps. On the coast, just southeast of Christchurch, is Banks Peninsula, composed of two large mainly basaltic Miocene volcanoes.
