A world-class experience focusing on the city’s population as the port from which most Antarctic expeditions begin, the Antarctic Centre gives simulated polar weather, exhibits about the science missions to the icy continent, all-terrain vehicle rides, penguins and much more. It’s a great day out for families as well as adults fascinated by the world’s last, great wilderness.

Transportation near International Antarctic Centre

Driving in Christchurch is easy, and parking is usually no problem. Hiring a car comes into its own for touring the South Island’s scenic wonders and trips to New Brighton Beach, the weekend hub for most local people due to its regular events, quaint shops and beachside pubs. The city’s bus service is adequate, but occasional gaps in the service make getting around a slow process, especially late at night and on Sundays.
