Tips van locals
An exeptional place to visit, close to Christchurch Airport & open every day of the year.
The International Antarctic Centre is a centre of excellence for the Antarctic studies. The displays are suitable for the whole family and you can even experience what an Antarctic storm is like in the cold room.
Offers an interactive Antarctica snow and ice experience, survive an Antarctic Storm, learn about life in modern day Antarctica and Scott Base, Hagglund rides and hang out with Little Blue Penguins! I haven't met anyone yet that has said they didn't enjoy their time here. Definitely try checking…
One of Christchurch's best known attractions - check it out and be amazed as well as learning heaps. Next to the airport you can travel to a whole lot of Antarctica - you'll be transported to an incredible world of ice and mystery, ambition and endeavour.

“Willowbank is a local zoo/petting zoo. Its not the cheapest place to go (If you are around for longer its definitely worth to buy a year pass) but an awesome experience. You can feed and pet lots of animals and even see a Kiwi bird in real life! If you are lucky you may also be around for a Haka dance (Native Maori fighting dance) which locals present there occasionally.”

“Orana Park is a large open plan style zoo. You can see a range of animals including Lions, Gorilla's , Giraffe's, Rhinoceros and Zebra to name a few. This is a visit that will last the full day. There are food options onsite, but a backpack and snacks/drinks are recommended.”
