Join us on the full day trip into Christchurch. Enjoy the picturesque drive into Christchurch “The Garden City”. And yes Christchurch is open and has many things to see and activities to do, come and enjoy our city.
The Garden City of Christchurch was devastated by two major earthquakes on 4- Sep 2010 and 22- Feb 2011 and this is clearly visible as we drive past demolition sites and ruined buildings on our way to the new city centre at Hagley Park. Travellers will have the opportunity from here to choose a variety of optional excursions to get the most out of your on shore experience or simply enjoy a free day out visiting The Botanical Gardens, The new Cashel Street Mall, or take a Punt on the Avon.
