We welcome RACS ASC delegates to Ōtautahi Christchurch in 2024. Christchurch offers a variety of experiences for business events delegates to enjoy. Our range of iconic Christchurch Attractions offer a fantastic way to see and explore New Zealand’s second largest city during your conference stay.
Located atop the Port Hills overlooking Lyttelton Harbour, the Christchurch Gondola is easily accessible from both Christchurch City and the port of Lyttelton and offers stunning panoramic views. Catch the #28 public bus from either Lyttelton or central Christchurch and disembark at the door of the Gondola, or travel via taxi or rideshare service. The cablecar journey takes approximately 10 minutes each way, and attractions at the summit include walking track access, licensed café, discovery ride and retail store.
We recommend allowing around 2 hours for a visit to the Gondola including travel time (5 minutes via taxi or bus from Lyttelton, and 15-30 minutes via taxi or bus from central Christchurch).
