Get the kids onboard with the Christchurch Tram

Can’t go over it… can’t go under it…. Let’s go through it!

The new city of Christchurch is a children’s wonderland: playgrounds, cool new icecream stores, incredible learning spaces and of course the Christchurch Tram is the best way to get around it all!  Whether it is to fill in a day or two in the holidays, or perhaps a weekend treat, an excursion through the city is sure to delight kids of all ages.

A day pass on the historic Christchurch Tram will lead you straight to some of the key must dos and or drop you close enough for a short walk to the others.  Jump on at any of the 17 tram stops around the city and start your journey.  Be sure to stop in for a visit at Tūranga, the brand new central city knowledge centre, for a quick burst of learning; hop off at New Regent Street for a delicious gelato from Rollickin’ Gelato and just a hop skip and jump to the incredible Margaret Mahy Playground.  The Terraces on Oxford Terrace and new Riverside Market are also a must do and are a well-deserved treat for some tired parents.

We haven’t even got to the best bit: with the Christchurch Tram City Tour, for every paying adult you can take up to three kids for free! So grab the kids (maybe throw in a friend or two!), your enthusiasm and get exploring the new Christchurch!
