Below is a list of attractions, activities, and things to do in Christchurch all with easy access from Arcadia Motel.
We can also assist with local information, attractions, restaurants and options for rental vehicles.
Soar suspended above the suburbs as the birds fly beneath your cabin. The Christchurch Gondola whisks you nearly a kilometre to the crater rim. The Port Hills, a collapsed crater rim of an extinct volcano which exploded six million years ago, shelters Lyttleton's sparkling harbour. To the west, the Southern Alps seem close in the clear pure air and to the east, the ocean and the sky stretch as far as the eye can see.
Experience the Time Tunnel, a dramatic reconstruction of the history of the Port Hills and Christchurch. Watch subterranean forces unleash molten magma to rip the rocks apart. See life-size dioramas of the early voyagers, Polynesian and then the European, making landfall after months of travel.
