  • Christchurch Casino

    Christchurch Nightlife

    Although New Zealand has a gambling problem, and we must hear and read every now and then how horrible it is to go to a casino, I quite like the Christchurch Casino. For those who are no gambling addicts it is ok to go there, and it is much more than gambling. In fact we mostly go there not for gambling at all but for lunch and dinner. They have...

  • City Views at Night

    Christchurch Nightlife

    Not much about it really, but THE square in town. The cathedral is beautiful and well worth a visit. At night, even in mid-winter, when this picture was taken, there's lots of people out there.

  • Dux de Lux

    Christchurch Nightlife

    Dux de Lux is Latin for Masters of the Finest and they keep up their name especially with their beer. The Dux is good for both a bite to eat and place to meet and has been around since 1978. The main nights here are Friday and Saturday with a live band normally playing in the Tavern Bar. The sort of music is generally alternative rock so a good...

  • Stargazing

    A night spent at Lake Tekapo will give you the chance to visit Mt John Observatory for a night-time activity like no other. The observatory was built here because the location is just about perfect - these are the clearest skies in all New Zealand and the isolation means light pollution is absolutely minimal. Mount John overlooks the lake and the...
