We will be in Christchurch for 2 nights later this month. We'll arrive in time for dinner on the 1st night, have all the next day free and then have a flight out at noon on the last day.
My question is about how best to use this time. We'll be staying in a B & B near the airport but will have a rental car.
We are 2 active 60 year old adults. We're not keen on spending hours in a museum but quite like to have a general overview of a new city and its history. I'm fascinated with the Antarctic and am drawn to the Antarctic Centre but wonder if the rides etc. are more geared towards children - though have LOVED 4D experiences in the past!! If we do go there, is the Xpress pass worth considering?
I've looked at various tours - Rebuild, tram, various bus tours, but just can't seem to choose between them. Any recommendations?
Finally, are there any restaurants for our evening meal that we can easily reach from our B & B in the Avonhead/Burnside area? We don't mind a longish walk and prefer to walk than drive so that we can have a glass or two of wine with our meal!
Thanks for any tips
