Shopping Mall
“Discounted shopping mall, but can be a nuisance to get to if you don't have a car. If you do visit, I recommend the 5min drive further out of town to the Cookie Time factory!”

Sublocality
“Only 7 minutes drive away, Sumner is the best local beach - great for walks. Over the hill at the end of the beach a short drive away is Taylors Mistake - an enclosed bay /beach with better surf. On the beach is the Beach Bar - well situated on the beach but not great in terms of culinary! But good for a coffee or quick meal or a drink. Another cafe on the water is by the Clock Tower at the other end of the beach called Ocean Cafe Bar Scarborough. Also nice view and relaxed ambiance and good to start/end a walk on the waterfront. Also in terms of restaurants, there are a lot there. We recommend the Vietnamese Le Xom; great fish rotis but there are also Indian (Indian Sumner), Mexican (Headless Mexican) and more traditional NZ (Clink). To get a view, we recommend driving up to Evans Pass (back of Sumner) and turn right on the Summit Road - you can go all the way and down Mt Pleasant Road to home. ”

Entertainment
“As one of New Zealand’s largest indoor entertainment venues, the Horncastle Arena attracts leading international artists, performers and sports teams to Christchurch. Concerts here are a big deal, and fans travel from all over the country to take in the sights, sounds, excitement and adrenalin on display. Conveniently located in Addington, the arena boasts over 4,000m2 of floor space – an area that is readily available for the big Christchurch events and easily adaptable for the smaller ones. Clever design integrations mean the venue can quickly transform from a netball court to a 7000-seat concert arena. Such flexibility ensures Horncastle Arena can cater for exhibitions, expos, concerts, conferences and gala dinners.”

The Cardboard Cathedral was designed by the Japanese architect Shigeru Ban and opened in August 2013. It is located on the site of St John the Baptist Church on the corner of Hereford and Madras Streets in Latimer Square, several blocks from the permanent location of ChristChurch Cathedral.”
