How long will it take to drive from Christchurch to Banks peninsula? Is it possible/ advisable to go there and back in a day....after a long distance flight from U.K.?
Hi We plan to do self drive from Admiral Hotel Christchurch to Mount Cook. Total 6 adults n 1 infant.
can we know roughly the KM and also the petrol cost
Hi, we will arrive in Christchurch April 6th and are looking for a nice camping place for the first night or two and visit the Bank Peninsula. Would you recommend driving to BP with a campervan. We prefer a walk by foot cause first time in nzl and no route experience so far. What about Little River Campground as bivouac? Any other recommendations for a base camp. Cheers
I'm traveling to New Zealand in February 2016 for a biking trip that starts in Christchurch. We and another couple arrive a few days early and would like to see Banks Peninsula and other local sites. Trying to avoid renting a car. Anyone know of a tour company that might pick us up from our hotel (not booked yet) and drive us up there? We'd be willing to spend the night in akaroa or kaikora. Perhaps use train as well. Just have to be back in Christchurch three days later. Thank you!
If I am to start from Christchurch, riccarton, what would be the route to follow to cover the peninsula bay.
Please tell me if it is worth a trip to Banks Penninsula if I have just half a day's time to visit there.
