Evening in Christchurch

Hi there,

My boyfriend & i are planning for a trip to New Zealand from 22nd to 28th Sept 07.

We will be staying at Copthorne Central Hotel on 22nd night before

joining the local tour that we have booked on 23rd morning. Our flight is scheduled to arrive at Christchurch on 22nd 2pm..

Any recommendations on what I can do on 22nd evening? Prefer to stay in the area near to the hotel :-)

Also, how will the temp be like during this time? esp during the evening

~ Thanks~

This will be early Spring for us and the evening temps can still be quite cool - you may need a warm jacket. Your hotel is very centrally located and you are easy walking distance to Cathedral Square (the centre of our city) and our cathedral is located here and open to view. Nearby is the beautiful Avon River and lovely to sit by and walk round. Lots of eating places, tourists shops etc around this part of town.

Hi Sherling

You should catch the restored trams.You can even have a meal onboard.


or Punting on the Avon river


The 22nd is a saturday , so there will be plenty of night life.

Without the "stay near hotel" I'd have recommended going to Willowbank Woldlife Park for their amazing wildlife encounter dinners. Took some Japanese visitors there a few years ago & they loved it. the kiwi were especially noisy and active that night.

However if you are tired & just want to stroll by the Avon, head for "The Strip" - a short stretch of Oxford Terrace that is packed with restaurants.

A "famous-in-Chch" restaurant is Hays on Victoria Street which specialises in NZ lamb.
