We’re thrilled to be re-opening the Christchurch Gondola and Hanmer Springs Attractions from Wednesday 1 July, as well as opening Punting on the Avon for a pop-up opening for the winter school holidays! Here’s what you need to know:
The Christchurch Gondola will be open from 10am until 4pm daily, with the last cabin departing from the summit station at 4:30pm. Single-entry tickets are available as well as Annual Passes allowing unlimited rides on both the Tram and Gondola for a whole year – a great idea for locals who visit one or both attractions frequently. There’s plenty to do at the summit station: between the Time Tunnel ride (entry is free with a valid Gondola ticket or Annual Pass), walking tracks, café, gift store and of course taking in the stunning views, there is more than enough to keep the whole family entertained! Plus if you are visiting during the July school holidays, take advantage of our great Kids Go Free offer for KidsFest: enter the promo code KIDSFEST20 when booking online to get three child tickets for FREE per paying adult.
Hanmer Springs Attractions is set to open from 9:30am until 5pm Thursday – Monday (closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays except during the school holidays when we will be open seven days a week). Join us for the full range of adventure activities on offer: with Jet Boating, Bungy Jumping, Quad Biking, Rafting, Canoeing, Clay Bird Shooting and Paintball there is plenty to get your adrenaline pumping! Hanmer Springs Attractions is Qualmark and AdventureMark accredited with regular safety audits and our professional and qualified staff are committed to upholding our high safety standards, ensuring our customers have fun and safe adventure experiences. Come and join the team for some action-packed fun!
Punting on the Avon is also opening the doors of our Antigua Boat Sheds site for a pop-up opening between 4-25 July for the school holidays. The team have woollen blankets and hot water bottles on hand to keep guests warm and toasty on board. Bookings essential.
Plus the Christchurch Tram is up and running after re-opening at the end of May: the all-day tickets are perfect for exploring Christchurch’s inner city! Open between 10am – 4pm daily with the last tram departing from Cathedral Junction at 3pm, this is a great family-friendly activity.
We’ve also got a great family prize pack up for grabs in time for the school holidays: see our competition page for further details including how to enter!
