About Us

All the best experiences in Christchurch

Welcome to Christchurch Attractions! Locally-owned and operated, the Wood Scenic Line has operated Christchurch’s most iconic attractions since 2005. Whether you are a Christchurch local or a domestic or overseas visitor, our friendly team are committed to giving you an unforgettable experience during your visit to our city.

Who are we?

Our attractions have been an important part of Christchurch’s tourism scene for decades, with Punting on the Avon opening in 1986, the Christchurch Gondola in 1992 and the Christchurch Tram in 1995. We are lucky to have a fantastic team of staff working at each of our attractions with plenty of experience: some of our staff members have been employed with us for over 10 years!

Why choose us?

Our attractions include some of Christchurch’s most iconic attractions: Tram, Gondola, Punting as well as the Tramway Restaurant dining experience.  These activities are fantastic ways to see Christchurch from fresh and unique perspectives.

Our activities are all Qualmark Gold certified by Tourism New Zealand’s Qualmark audit process and we are committed to ensuring our attractions are sustainably operated with most of our activities electrically powered.
