The grounds were extensive and fabulous. Many strange and interesting plants to learn about. There is a great playground for kids (we got stuck here with our energetic 3 yo) with a small restaurant nearby for sustinance. A great place for a picnic and to while away an afternoon if you need some downtime.Popular withFamiliesGreen

The Antarctic Centre is a great place to spend a few hours in Christchurch. You can get up close and personal with some penguins, ride on a snow-cat and even step into a room that's the same temperature as the South Pole! great for the kids and anyone with an interest in the deep, deep south!Popular withFamiliesStudentsHistory

I took the train from Christchurch to Greymouth, though it is possible to get off at other stops before this. The trip is expensive, but the scenery is amazing. The train does have several cars that are open air for people who want to photograph the trip without an intervening window.
