Christchurch has failed to make the list of the country's top attractions in the latest Lonely Planet guidebook.

Wellington made the top spot as the "coolest little capital in the world".

Auckland, Queenstown and the West Coast have all made the list but Christchurch didn't feature.

Loren Heaphy, ChristchurchNZ General Manager of Destination and Attraction, told Chris Lynch it's a bit devastating but there are a lot of local attractions on there such as Akaroa, Kaikoura and the TranzAlpine railway which starts and ends in the city.
