Christchurch is a lively city with lots to do, and boasts some unique attractions such as the International Antarctic Centre, where visitors can learn about life in the Antarctic in a hands-on setting. Wildlife conservation is important to the Kiwis, and the Willowbank Wildlife Reserve makes for a great visit to see some NZ native rare species in a natural setting. For the best views in the city, opt for a ride on the Christchurch gondola.
Christchurch is in a great location to indulge in some adrenaline pumping activities; within a couple of hours of the city are opportunities to ski, bungy jump and skydive, as well as whale and dolphin watch. If cityslicking is more your thing, head to Christchurch's New Regent Street to browse lovely local shops and cafes, and even sit in the Central Library's Outdoor Reading Room.
When you fly to Christchurch Airport (CHC), metro buses provide a regular service into the city centre and surrounding locations. They depart from the international arrivals terminal and tickets can be bought right from the driver. The airport also has two taxi ranks; one outside International arrivals, and one by the Regional Lounge. Vehicle rentals are also available, and drive time to the city centre is about 20 minutes.
