Christchurch Attractions & Tailored Tour Ideas

Travelling to another country to participate in a fencing competition
can be great fun for the person competing and also for the family members and friends who are supporting them. However when travelling any distance, it is more than likely that the inside of a venue is not the only local attraction on the “to do” list. There are other great things in the city and further afield worth visiting.

On non-competition days you will be foot loose and fancy free to go exploring or alternatively there will be days that your supporters to explore on their own. 

To help choose what to do on any free days, the Christchurch City Council Event team have put together some great “Partner Day Trip” ideas as well as options for shorter periods of free time.


Trip ideas include cafe stops, shopping at the Re-Start Container Mall, The Tannery, punting on Avon, riding the tram, visiting the gondola and visits to Hanmer Springs and/or Akaroa where the Hectors or Maui dolphin, one of the smallest marine dolphins in the world and only found in New Zealand can be seen.

Cafe Crawl? A cafe/ coffee shop crawl is a fresh take on a pub crawl, where you can navigate around a city, CBD or suburb via great coffee and food places. This is a great way to experience many atmospheres, cuisine and meet some amazing people along the way.  If you would like to do this in Christchurch, then our Pockets of Awesome-Hospitality Map will help you on your quest. Asking people you bump into for their favourite cafe suggestions is another great way to discover popular local cafes and eateries. 

For example if you love a really good date scone... I would suggest you wander down to Addington Coffee Co-op on Lincoln Rd...5 minute drive from Pioneer Stadium.
