Stocking up on booze in Christchurch.

by Tricky_Dicky69

Hi, can anyone tell me where the best place is for stocking up on booze in Christchurch. We will only be in town for 1 night before heading off for 2 weeks touring the lower half of south island and would like to load the hire car up with essential supplies. ( Wine, beer, wine & wine ) We are staying at The Lorenzo on Riccarton and wonder if there is anywhere suitable at The Westfield Mall. Any help much appreciated as rehab clearly didn't work ;-)

Why do you want to stock up with wine if you're heading south? The wineries of Canterbury and Central Otago are surely the place to try before you buy as you go.

best bet might be the supermarkets....they do tend to be more competitive than the liquor stores. There is a glut of NZ white wine at the moment, and plenty of cheap Aussie reds...check out the guys at winesale.co.nz, 1-day.co.nz etc - plenty to chose from and you can just bill it to your c/card and have it delivered to you at Lorenzo. Beer is a bit trickier - supermarket is best. There is PaknSave at Westfield, or probably better to go to Countdown further south-west on Riccarton Rd. Plenty of craft breweries here now too...Twisted Hop In CHC does cask-conditioned...
If you are interested in quality rather than quantity, some of this still holds true.....

There is a Pak'n'Save supermarket at Westfield Riccarton. They permanently have wine and beer sales and special offers.

After reading your post I would only kindly ask you not to drink and drive. Thank you.

Travel Tips for Christchurch

Ethnic Groups in Christchurch

by swings

I'm not quite sure just where to put this tip, but I wanted to point out that at least some ethnic groups in Christchurch apparently have an agency which will help foreigners adjust to living in a new community. I was given a booklet for Arabs, titled "Arab Pages", and it gives information about Arab organizations, where to worship, ethnic food sources, how to reach various embassies, etc. It is available through the Ethnic Resource Centre (ERC), Inc., Christchurch Community House, 141 Hereford Street, City Centre, Phone 03 365 3139.

Statues (5): Captain James Cook

by Kakapo2

-

The statue of Captain James Cook, sculpted by the Christchurch artist William Trethewey, is located on Victoria Square, just about 50 metres from Queen Victoria’s statue.

It was gifted to the City by M. F. Barnett, and unveiled on 10 August 1932 by the Governor General, Lord Bledisloe.

On the granite base of the marble figure is the inscription:

James Cook, Captain, Royal Navy, circumnavigator who first hoisted the British flag in New Zealand and explored her seas and coasts, 1769-70, 1773-4, 1777.

Further down you can read: Oceani investigator accerimus.

Serious CC and Downhill MTB on Bowenvale Tracks

by Kakapo2

If you are seriously into mountainbiking the Port Hills are a great place for you. I have seen some MTB'ers crash (and myself while running LOL) and I would not dare to use many of the tracks. This is a good indicator that they are not really good for beginners but suited for experienced bikers.

The tracks are very rocky, some very narrow, just wide enough for a bike tyre, but there are also easier parts which lead over wooden overbridges and rattling metal cattle stops. The bad thing is that if you crash you fall hard nearly always, as there are only few soft grass verges on the volcanic rock surface.

On the shared access tracks that lead up to the Port Hills from Bowenvale Avenue I have seen a lot of bikers in serious downhill gear, and I could also see some difficult and steep tracks which I would only walk LOL

Access and the way back to the carpark might be a bit annoying for bikers as there are many gates which slow them down. At some gates they even have to lift the bikes over the gates. But this security measure is in place to make trampers (hikers) survive their walks on the shared access track ;-)

Time honoured tradition

by TheWanderingCamel

Lyttelton Time Ball Station harks back to an historic maritime practice that was a vital part of safety at sea. Dropping the time ball is a ritual that followed the invention of the chronometer - the instrument that meant ships at sea could navigate their way across lines of longitude with an accuracy - and resultant safety - never before experienced in maritime history. Invented in 1829, the time ball's function is to give ships in harbour a signal by which to set their chronometers with complete accuracy. Once a feature of ports everywhere, first the radio telegraph and then electronic technology have seen time balls removed and nowadays there are only about 60 left all around the world.

Like the vast majority of timeball stations Lyttelton dropped its ball at 1pm. The ball was raised half way at 5 minutes to 1 to signal the ships in the harbour and then raised to the top. The moment the ball began to fall signalled the precise Greenwich time by which maritime chronometers are set. Lyttelton's timeball came into service in 1876 and continued to drop daily until 1934 when radio signals took over.

Although the castle-like building was put to various uses after that it wasn't until 1978 that it was fully restored and opened as an important part of Lyttelton's maritime history and one of only 5 functioning timeballs in the world.

Open: Daily October- -5.30pm. May-September - Wednesday to Sunday 10-5.30.
