Winter weekend in Christchurch

Christchurch is a food lover’s dream. What better way to spend your winter weekend, than by enjoying an incredible (and Instagram worthy) brunch, venturing out to try a new spot for dinner, or cozying up over a cocktail or two.

Ryan and Jillian started their Christchurch stay-cation with a trip by Ballooning Canterbury. Sorry, Ryan, video cannot do the feeling of being in a hot air balloon over the Canterbury Plains justice. This is one for the bucket list.

They then spent the day relaxing and eating their way through some of our cities best. Notable mentions include Little High, A mouse called Bean, The Exchange, Hello Sunday, Potsticker, and O.G.B. With new hospitality options opening weekly, Christchurch is home to some of the most exciting dining options in the country.

To break up the feast they recommend trying out one of their favourite winter activities: heading along to an ice hockey match at the Alpine Centre, or visiting the Alice Theatre, one of Christchurch’s many boutique cinemas.
