Attractions

Whether it’s the restored aircraft at the Air Force Museum or hiking the Crater Rim of the Port Hills, Christchurch has so much to offer. From Samurai Swords to live Tarantula’s, the Canterbury Museum is a great day out. See kiwi birds at Willowbank Wildlife Reserve, New Zealand’s only native owl, the Morepork at Orana Wildlife Park or penguins at the International Antarctic Centre. Step back in time at Ferrymead Heritage Park or be courageous on the aerial obstacle course at Adrenaline Forest. Take a walk through the Botanic Gardens or a guided tour of the nature reserves at White Herron Sanctuary. Tothill’s Maze is a seasonal attraction running January to April but if the corn’s not ready to play, head over for a cheap game of mini-golf at Caddyshack City. Complement your Christchurch experience quad biking before relaxing in the amazing thermal pools of Hanmer Springs.
