I didn't fly we did a Magic Bus tour but it was bloody freezing but dry and that was the middle of May. I had 3 jumpers on and I am from Scotland!! Hopefully it will be nicer weather for you.

You can get cheap flights with Air New Zealand if you book on their website. If you've got longer and want to see more of New Zealand in between then I recommend Magic Bus though, as it was really good fun.

Full Contact Chess!

by ATXtraveler

In downtown Christchurch, directly in front of the church is actually a full sized chess board, designed with grey and darker grey tiles on the ground, and someone brings out full sized chess pieces every day. Although we watched the match for quite a while, they never got close enough to each other to actually tackle one another, so I can not be certain it actually was "full contact", but the gentleman playing the white team clearly had a protective helmet on for some reason. The chess pieces are provided, but you may want to bring your helmet just in case!

A fine harbour,

by TheWanderingCamel

and lots of charm.

With its brightly painted houses tumbling down the steep hills and narrow stairs to go up and down, Lyttelton reminded me of the Chilean port of Valparaiso way across the other side of the Pacific. Whilst still the busiest commercial port and deepest harbour on the South Island, like its Chilean counterpart, Lyttelton has seen better days but still has a a lot of appeal. Solid Victorian port offices and bank buildings along the main street are reminders of a time when everything that came to this far-flung corner of the Empire passed through this port, bringing both settlers and cargo to the new colony and shipping out . Nowadays containers and coal form the bulk of goods passing through the port.

Situated on the north side of the long bay formed by the crater of one of the long-extinct volcanoes that created the Banks Peninsula, once the only way to get from the port to the city of Christchurch was via the Evans Pass over the Port Hills that divide the harbour from the flat land of the Canterbury Plain beyond - an arduous journey on foot for the first settlers until a roadway was built in 1857. Now the port is accessible in just 20 minutes by road from the centre of Christchurch via a road tunnel.

Maritime history, harbour cruises, scenic walks, cute cafes, nature trails and the spectacular views offered by the Christchurch Gondola are all good reasons to head for Lyttelton for a day.

Take the No 35 or 28 bus from Cathedral Square in the city centre.

Christchurch's nightlife is...

by Miz

Christchurch's nightlife is centred around Oxford Terrance, otherwise known as 'The Strip' in the City Mall area. If you are not into drinking and loud dance music however, visit The Strip during the day to sample the vibrant cafe scene.

Warners

by CandS about Warners

We had lunch at Warners Pub one day while in Christchurch...it has a nice (and big) beer garden out the back with plenty of seating inside and out. The pesto pasta was probably the best I've ever had at a restaurant...
