Great source of information and advise!

We popped in here 2x as we went up and down the main street. Packed with lots of tourist info, brochures, and books but also very helpful staff to answer your questions.

It seems everyone in this centre try to work really hard to bring back the reputation of Christchurch as a main tourist destination, good try.

As you would expect, they know all you need to know about Christchurch and the surrounding area. They are often busy but you never feel they wish to rush you way and are happy to take the time to ensure you get the best from your visit.

The location for this information center is spot on. Right in the middle of where everything is, easy access. The building is a charming building in itself and the renobvations since the earthquake have been done very well indeed.

Once we found the i-SITE the service was excellent, but signs in central Christchurch direct you first to Botanic Gardens & we had to ask directions to find the building. This is understandable as Christchurch is still undergoing earthquake reconstruction. I think this is the permanent site now. Information about and directions to the Gondola were excellent.

Granted, the building is really nice and in a great setting. However the i-Site itself provided little information.
