Things to see in Christchurch


Hagley Park

After the long flights to Christchurch, relax in the open green spaces of the city nicknamed “The Garden City”. Hagley Park dominates the western side of the city centre with natural parkland open to the public.

Containing the Christchurch Botanic Gardens with the meandering Avon River flowing through, the greenery offers a beautiful view of the native flora of New Zealand.

Insider’s Tip: After wandering around the gardens, take a punt along the Avon River to make your way back to the city centre!

Re:Start Mall

After the devastating earthquakes of 2010 and 2011, the city is rebuilding itself in a new modern, and environmentally sustainable, way. One of the most iconic sights of the city is the Re:Start Mall, a collection of repurposed sea containers that have been transformed into boutique shops and restaurants.

This colourful and fun area of the city created a hub of positivity after the loss of so many of the city’s buildings and allowed residents and visitors to see the city bounce back stronger than ever. Quake City, a special exhibition by the Canterbury Museum, takes an interesting look at the events during this time and the following period of rebuilding.

Things to Do in Christchurch

Sheep on Akaroa Peninsula in Christchurch, New Zealand

International Antarctic Centre

Ever wanted to experience the world’s most remote and uninhabitable continent but didn’t want to get too far out of your comfort zone? Well, the International Antarctic Centre is the answer!

Experience all four seasons on this great white land from total daylight to total darkness, or weather an Antarctic storm in a safe environment. See what an Antarctic Cruise is like in the 4D cinema, and board a Hagglund vehicle and traverse the snow and ice. After all the excitement and wonder of this desolate expanse, visit some of the inhabitants in a penguin encounter, or take time out to cuddle with the working animals that made the first expeditions possible, huskies.


A short 90 minute drive from Christchurch takes you over rolling hills and deep valleys to the Akaroa and Banks Peninsula where the influence of the early French settlers is immediately apparent still to this day.

The town of Akaroa is a lovely destination to wander on foot, flying French flags from its artisan stores, or enjoy a beverage on the shoreline and take in the stunning views out over the Akaroa Harbour with its resident dolphin pods.

Insider’s Tip:Take a drive along Summit Road for spectacular views from the extinct volcano rim down to the bays, or strap on the walking shoes and take your time following one of the many trails available.

Christchurch’s Nearby Cities

High in the spine of the mountains, Arthur’s Pass offers a fantastic two hour drive from Christchurch that takes in the changing scenery as you head up from sea level to 900 metres above. The drive is worthwhile on its own but the best way to experience the majesty of the area is on the Trans-Alpine Railway that joins the town of Greymouth in the west to Christchurch in the east.

A short domestic flight from Christchurch can take you to the winter wonderland of Queenstown, a fantastic launching point to visit Milford Sound; the capital city of Wellington with its stunning botanic gardens; or Auckland, the business city with day trips to Rotorua or the Waitomo Caves.

Why Is Flying Business Class to Christchurch Important?

To answer that question there are two factors; time and comfort.

Time in the convenience and service levels throughout in both the airports and onboard the flight. With dedicated check-in desks and fast track through security, you will be enjoying the facilities of the business class lounge away from all the crowds and with priority boarding and disembarking, as well as your luggage arriving first, you save time and enjoy more convenience.

Comfort comes from both the service and the experience available on business class flights to Christchurch. The attentive and personal staff that makes the journey hassle-free and the benefits of a fully flat bed for a better night’s sleep, ample personal space to stretch out in, a smaller and quieter cabin size and an a-la-carte menu offering with cuisine from all over the world combine to ensure you arrive rested and relaxed.

Who’s Best to Fly to Christchurch in Business Class With?

Airline preference comes down to several reasons that make passengers chose one carrier over another. From the city a flight connects through to whether you’re a member of an airline’s membership program and from the service and product offered to the price, it all contributes to the decision.

A lot of people are willing to pay a little more for the convenience of only having to connect once on their business class flights to Christchurch with airlines such as Singapore Airlines and Cathay Pacific. This option also means that you receive a true business class product on every leg of the journey.

Alternatively, airlines such as Emirates, QANTAS and Air New Zealand all offer a two stop service from the UK but may include a different business class product for the short flight between either Auckland or Australia to Christchurch. The same can be said for European carriers such as Swiss Air or Lufthansa with a short flight in Europe and then on Singapore and Christchurch. Including a quick second connection can often save a considerable amount of money but passengers may need additional visas or have changes in their luggage allowances that they will need to be aware of.
