Christchurch is the gateway to exploring the region and South Island. Christchurch Airport is New Zealand's second largest, servicing 11 different airlines connecting domestic centres and international airports in Australia, Fiji, Rarotonga, Singapore, Hong Kong, China and Dubai. Christchurch city centre is a short 20 minutes' drive from the airport. You can catch a taxi from outside the airport or arrange a ride share or shuttle. Public transport is also available – take the number 3 or 29 as these bring you into the central city bus interchange. Our car park is located at the back of the building and accessed at 23 Kilmore Street.
On the best summer days (Dec-Feb), it’s hot and dry in Christchurch, typically sitting around 23-27°C in peak summer although it can get hotter occasionally. In Autumn (Mar-May), Christchurch remains warmish and reasonably calm, cooling as it gets closer to winter. In winter (June to Aug) it does get cold, experiencing frosty mornings but rarely dropping below -1°C. But a crisp winter’s day can also be all blue skies and sunshine, which is lovely! In spring (Sept to Nov) it’s still cool and can be rainy, but the spring blossoms and blooms in the garden city are worth any weather.
