Christchruch and South Island in winter

by jerrybarach

My wife and I are planning to fly in to Christchurch in late July-early August and are considering renting a car to take in some of the sights. My question is whether most of the better sites will be accessible at that time of year or are likely to be closed due to snow and ice conditions.

Christchruch and South Island in winter

by kiwi

You can access most areas during the winter. Unless there is a severe storm, that closes roads. But that is often localised so you can still find somewhere to go. You do have to be careful anyway, of ice on the road. Your rental company will advise you, and be sure to tune in to radio stations for reports.
The mountains are gorgeous this time of year so you will see some lovely sites. Have a great trip!

Travel Tips for Christchurch

Old Christchurch Girl's High School

by fishandchips

The original Christchurch Girls' High School was opened on 13 Sept. 1877 and originally occupied a building on the corner of Hereford Street and Rolleston Avenue. In 1878 plans were submitted for a new building in Cranmer Square and in late 1881 the new building was opened. Extensions were made along Armagh Street and along Montreal Street over a period of 40 or so years. The school is the second oldest girls’ secondary school in New Zealand.

Girls' High moved to a new site in Deans Avenue, Riccarton, in mid 1986, with the official opening on 10 Nov. 1986. The Cranmer Square building, which you see if ther photo, was bought by the Arts Centre in July 2001. The first building in Hereford Street became the School of Art until it moved to Ilam in 1957. It was then used as an extension to the University Library until the whole University moved to Ilam, when it became part of the Arts Centre of Christchurch.

Locals and tourists play chess on Cathedral Square

by martin_nl

If you feel bored or want to make some new friends, go to Cathedral Square and see if you can play a game of chess with the locals. Some of the pieces are rather big, so if you have little kids, just replace some pieces with them and you might be able to cheat and win, by telling them to move around the board in your advantage ;)))

New Zealand’s Largest Indoor Waterslide

by Kakapo2

It is always nice to read about all the superlatives New Zealand has to offer. This huge waterslide system – they call it Hydroslide - is part of the big indoor swimming pool complex of Queen Elizabeth II Park (we only call it QE II Park), and although you can only access it from the indoor pool area the meandering and twisted tubes are all outside the building LOL But the five slides have intriguing names like Terror Tube, Body Bullet, Cruiser, Titan and Colossus – and it must be fun, as I always hear a lot of screaming when I walk past the tubes on my way from my athletics training on Ground 2…

As it is NZ’s largest indoor waterslide I guess there must be a bigger one somewhere – but outdoor… Ok, ok… I googled a bit – and found New Zealand’s longest hot water slide in Huntly LOL I am sure there is the longest cold water and the longest tepid water slide somewhere as well, so every town can have its watersliding superlative… Oh no, I see poor Taupo has only a giant dragon waterslide… But perhaps it is the country’s biggest medium-sized slide? And Waiwera’s eight waterslides rival the biggest ones throughout the country… But where is New Zealand’s ultimately biggest waterslide?!

Anyway… Enjoy the fun! With some exceptions: Children under eight must always be accompanied by an adult. Preschoolers are not allowed on the hydroslides.

All hydroslide tickets sold during normal operating times are for unlimited riding. Different coloured wrist-bands are used each day and are valid for the day of purchase only.

Hours of operation:
Mon – Fri 4pm – 8.30pm, weekends and public holidays 10am – 7.30pm, school holidays 10am – 8.30pm

Costs:
Adults $ 11, children $ 9.50, reductions for families. – The price does not include pool admission. -

Directions:
Bus #43 (New Brighton) from the Bus Exchange

By car: From the city centre head east via Gloucester, Hereford, Lichfield or another one of the parallel streets. Turn left into Fitzgerald Ave and then follow the signs to New Brighton. The stadium surrounded by high poplar trees is QE II Park. Turn left into Dick Taylor Drive (carpark) after the roundabout.

Amberley Day Trip

by fishandchips

Amberley is located about 50Km north of Christchurch and is a small town that most just pass through. It's a good spot to stop for a cup of tea or pick up you bottle of water for the longer trek to Kaikoura or Picton.

Amberley has several shops and a nice Golf Course located near the beach and the even smaller community of Amberley Beach. This area has suffered from recent flooding but is almost dried out now.

There is good surf fishing on the beach and great views all the way back down Pegasus Bay to Christchurch. The Amberley River runs its course near here and it's also a good spot for a visit and a bit of a swim if the river is up high enough.

Bus around Christchurch - it's easy!

by worldkiwi

Christchurch has a brilliant bus system that could provide a model for a city like Auckland. The ubiquitous red buses provide frequent services around the city. The well organised central bus station (known as the Bus Exchange), is the hub of the network. Fares around the city seem to be a flat NZ$2.50 and you can re-use your ticket within 2 hours of purchase in a return capacity. Of all the cities in New Zealand I've travelled on buses, this system seems the best I've seen. Also impressive (if you come from Auckland with its lousy bus system) is how often buses come and go. You never have to wait long and the services are reliable. Christchurch gets ten out of ten for its bus network. If you're on a budget in the city, it's the way to get around.
