Things to  do in Christchurch with Kids: Weekend Itinerary

Welcome to Christchurch, the capital of the South Island. It’s the biggest entry point for visitors and the best place to start off a road trip.

Hagley Park

The park is home to some incredible gardens, including the greenhouses which are great to explore on a cold or rainy day.

Try samples of locally produced salami, raw snacks, New Zealand’s very own Moustache Milk and Cookie Bar and our personal favourites, the Bacon Brothers.

Riverside Market

If you have conducted any research on Christchurch, you are likely to have seen a photo of a tram strolling through a beautiful street of pastel yellows and blues.

New Regent Street

Kids can explore the square, play a game of giant outdoor chess, or head over to the Christchurch City Library.

Cathedral Square

You will be able to see out over the whole of the East Coast and even over to Banks Peninsula, with beautiful bays and secret beaches.

Christchurch Gondola
