Travelling with family can be a chance to have some fun and make memories together. But, while a trip away is meant to be an escape from the chaos of home, bringing the kids along for the ride means bringing some of the chaos with you too. So make sure you’ve got some awesome entertainment, activities and destinations lined up to keep everyone happy (and sane) throughout the trip — and Christchurch is just the place.
The Christchurch Antarctic Centre
If you want to experience something really cool (literally), head to the Christchurch Antarctic Centre and experience the sights and sounds of Antarctica. Sign the kids up for the 4D special effects ice voyage or get up close with some of the most amazing animals on the planet, head to the Husky Zone for a cuddle, or visit the Penguin Encounter at feeding time. If your kids are tall enough get on board the all-terrain amphibious Antartic vehicles for an off road adventure like no other! Once you’re snowed out, relax in the café for a sweet treat and warm drink.
