Travel by CamperVan in September

by Suzanne08

My husband and I are planning to travel around the south island, start and end from Christchurch, in the first two weeks of September. Our original plan was to rent a campervan with shower and toilet. With such bad weather in NZ now, I really don't know if we should still go with campervan? Any suggestions?

I still would. September often starts to see more settled weather as opposed to the current very unsettled conditions we're experiencing and I'm hearing a lot of people down here in South Canterbury comment on this cold snap happening later than usual.

That said, it is going to be cold, particularly at night, so bear that in mind. I honestly wouldn't let the cold weather put me off hiring the van (personally) but I'd want to make sure I was wrapped up.

In September you do not have to expect such big snow dumps anymore - and if it happens you will also be stuck if you travel by car.

Personally I would surely not travel by campervan at the end of winter - but that is me, and if you do not mind to travel the rough way it should not be a problem. Every day I see a lot of people travelling by campervan or motorhome. Of course, I have also met some who were happy when they could spend a night or two in our house - but all of them survived ;-)

Travel Tips for Christchurch

Architecture

by Kate-Me

And the other special corner building I noticed, quite close to the end of the Mall in Central Christchurch.
It's a pity we really only had one full day free to wander the streets of Christchurch, as it's really deserving of a lot more attention. I remember most fondly the Avon River, the Mollyhawks in Victoria Square, the tram near the Square, and canoeing past the tudor building on the Avon (can anybody tell me what that building is?)

Maori Art Gallery in the Arts Centre

by martin_nl

If you are looking for some Maori Art, the arts centre is a very good place to buy something genuine. Prices aren't cheap though, but if money isn't too much of a problem I suggest buying it here. It looks great and the artists at this particular place make everything in front of your eyes.

Jetboating on the Waimakariri River

by Kakapo2

You do not have to travel as far as Queenstown if you want to go on a jetboating trip. The Waimakariri River near Christchurch is one of the not so famous NZ jetboating destinations but you can have a lot of fun there, too.

The "Waimak" is one of the most spectacular braided river systems we have and Canterbury is famous for. It flows into the sea 25kms north of Christchurch.

The trip leads deep into the foothills of the Southern Alps, and like on the Shotover the drivers perform a 360 degree spin, called the Hamilton spin - a guy with this name invented jetboating in the 1950s. The company is recognized for its safety record.

The boats offer seating for up to 22 passengers.

The company offers pick-up service from Christchurch.

Check the actual prices by phone as they are not provided on the website (which is something I hugely dislike about tourism operators because it gives the impression they are hugely overpriced and try to hide it). Normal clothes depending on the weather plus windbreaker for the windchill factor on the boat. Swimvests are provided, nothing else is needed. People with back or heart problems should not make the trip.

Lyttelton

by rozehill

Visit the town of Lyttelton, population of 3100, was connected to the city in 1964 by a 2 km road tunnel and is now the South Islands main port. In the middle of the harbour are the fascinating islands, Quail ,and Ripapa which have an interesting history.
Lyttelton Harbour is the northern of two sea inlets on Banks Peninsula which James Cook first sighted in 1770, thought was an island and named after naturalist Sir Joseph Banks. It had a violent beginning as a volcanic island that erupted 11 million years ago. Christchuch's first settlers landed in Lyttelton in 1850 and then made the historic trek over the Bridal Path to the "swamp", that is now Christchurch.

Ride in a Hagglund!

by ATXtraveler

If you really want to experience an exhilarating ride of your life, then I would recommend getting the opportunity to get in a Hagglund. This Swedish designed all-terrain tracked vehicle is employed heavily in Antarctica, so it would only be natural that the Antarctic Centre in Christchurch would have a live Hagglund for you to sit in and take for a spin.

An experienced Hagglund driver will load you up with 10 of your closest friends (or if they are strangers, they will be close and your friend by the end), and take you off on the ride of your life. Up and down dirt hills, through large mud pits, all from the relative comfort of the inner chamber.

This ride is not for the faint of heart, so make sure you are ready!

Currently, rides are $48.00 NZD for adults, which also includes entrance to the Antarctic Centre.
