We offer plenty of options for Christmas functions at our attractions. Between our Christchurch Gondola, Christchurch Tram, Punting on the Avon, the Tramway Restaurant, and Hanmer Springs Attractions locations, we have activities to suit a wide range of event types and budgets. 

Memorable experiences for your Christmas function!

Hanmer Springs Attractions

We have the perfect adventures for Christmas events outside of Christchurch. Jet boating, quad biking & buggy treks, rafting, bungy jumping and paintball are all great group options, and catered lunch or morning tea is also available for a full day of fun. Our activities operate from one central hub by the scenic Waiau River, meaning your group can enjoy several attractions in the same day. With other fun activities including hot pools and wine tasting nearby, Hanmer Springs is a fantastic option for your team’s Christmas getaway.

Options abound with the Christchurch Tram.

Punting on the Avon

If you’re after a relaxing option for your Christmas event, a scenic punt ride along the tranquil Avon River is the perfect activity. This is a great option for a group outing to unwind after a busy time, and an ideal activity pre- or post-lunch. Chat to us about group bookings or about gift vouchers for your team.
