Because the Canty Plains are so flat, 1 hour won't get you far enough to be interesting except in the Port Hils/Lytellton/Akaroa area. Try the Summit Rd, over to Governors Bay. & around the Harbour to Purau. Also go out to Sumner to see the container wall.

Rakaia Gorge might interest you, west of Christchurch. There's a great walkway there and jet boat rides through the gorge. Lovely spot.

A walk around the perimeter of the Christchurch CBD Red Zone is also quite interesting...and disquieting.

Don't forget to get a Metro card (bus pass) as soon as you get in to the Central Bus Station. Cost is $10 plus whatever credit you want to put on, but you can add credit any time with the bus driver. Single fare is $2.50 instead or $3.30 from memory and instead of one transfer you get 2 hours unlimited travel for the single fare price - PLUS, use the card twice in one day - eg going to & from work, the evening is free; use it 10 times in a week, the weekend is totally free.
