This morning, we enjoy a morning sightseeing tour of Christchurch by coach. Highlights include the River Avon, the Canterbury Museum, Christchurch Art Gallery; Bridge of Remembrance; the Canterbury Earthquake National Memorial and the Spanish Mission-inspired New Regent Street. Learn about the effects of the 2011 Christchurch Earthquakes and how the city is rebuilding.
This afternoon, make the most of your travel pass for the restored heritage Christchurch Tram so you can enjoy a journey in style through the changing face of Christchurch’s city centre. Knowledgeable drivers will inform you about the city, its landmarks and local sights. Your ticket allows you to get on and off the tram as often as you please!
The journey takes you to the appropriate stops for Punting on the Avon and the Christchurch Botanic Gardens Tour. In addition, Cathedral Junction, the Avon River, the Gothic-style Arts Centre, the Canterbury Museum and New Regent Street are just some of sights to be seen from the comfort of your tram, or accessed from the 17 stops en route. Board at any of the 18 tram stops, and get on and off with your ticket. The trams run approximately every 10-15-minutes.
