Lyttelton is a port town on the north shore of Lyttelton Harbour next to Banks Peninsula, 12 km by road from Christchurch on the eastern coast of the South Island of New Zealand. According to the last census, the usual resident population of Lyttelton (including neighbouring bays such as Rapaki and Corsair Bay) was 3,042. A home for Maori for about 700 years, Lyttelton, or Te whaka raupo was discovered by European settlers on 16 February 1770 during the Endeavour's first voyage to New Zealand. The earliest evidence of a human presence in the area are moa bones dating from roughly 1250.In August 1849 it was officially proclaimed a port. Lyttelton was formerly called Port Cooper and Port Victoria. It was the original settlement in the district (1850). The name Lyttelton was given to it in honour of George William Lyttelton of the Canterbury Association, which had led the colonisation of the area. The Lyttelton Times was one of the principal newspapers of the Canterbury region for 80 years, published from 1851 until 1929, at which time it became the Christchurch Times, until publication ceased in 1935. Aiming to establish a Church of England colony in New Zealand, the Canterbury Association was founded in 1848. As Lyttelton was a harbour, and had a large amount of flat land suitable for farming and development nearby, it was ideal for a colony. In 1862, the first telegraph transmission in New Zealand was made from Lyttelton Post Office. In 1870, fire destroyed all the wooden buildings in Norwich Quay, on the main street of Lyttelton. On January 1, 1908, the Nimrod Expedition, headed by Ernest Shackleton to explore Antarctica left from the harbour here. The Lyttelton Harbour Board was created in 1877 to be in charge of the harbour's management. It was dissolved in 1989 after the passing of the 1988 Port Companies Act, which forced it to split into two separate organisations, one commercial (the Lyttelton Port Company, currently owned by Christchurch City Holdings, the commercial arm of the city council) and one non-commercial. In 1996 the Lyttelton Port Company registered on the New Zealand Stock Exchange. (Source Wikipedia).

It followed nearly six months after the magnitude 7.1 2010 Canterbury earthquake of 4 September 2010, which caused significant damage to Christchurch and the central Canterbury region, but no direct fatalities. The earthquake caused widespread damage across Christchurch, especially in the central city and eastern suburbs, with damage exacerbated by buildings and infrastructure already being weakened by the 4 September earthquake and its aftershocks. Significant liquefaction affected the eastern suburbs, producing around 200,000 tonnes of silt. The earthquake was reported to be felt across the South Island and the lower and central North Island. In total, 181 people were killed in the earthquake, making the earthquake the second-deadliest natural disaster recorded in New Zealand (after the 1931 Hawke's Bay earthquake), and fourth-deadliest disaster of any kind recorded in New Zealand. Nationals from more than 20 countries were among the victims. The New Zealand Government declared a state of national emergency, which stayed in force until 30 April 2011. It has been estimated that the total cost of rebuilding to insurers to be around NZ$15/16 billion, making it by far New Zealand's costliest natural disaster, and the third-costliest earthquake worldwide.
