Staycation In The City

Staycation In The City

Make your next holiday a staycation, right here in Ōtautahi Christchurch, where our city of fun and balance has it all. 

No jet-lag, no airports, no queues, barely any packing and a city full of gastro-delights, art, history, adventure and stunning natural beauty to enjoy – your perfect weekend getaway is calling you.

Why Have A Staycation?

One of the best things about a staycation is there’s no travel time involved. Every precious minute of your time – and possibly babysitting cover – will be well utilised. In just 24 hours you can get a great taste of what Christchurch is all about and feel refreshed and inspired to face the world.

Soak up the chillaxed vibe as you wander the City Promenade – its path winds lazily alongside the Avon River and takes you past the The Terrace, Victoria Square and her stunning fountains and onto the Margaret Mahy Playground. Or head up into the hills for a breath of fresh air and panoramic views of the city, Lyttelton Harbour and the endless Pacific Ocean.

Check Our Great City Accommodation

There are options aplenty when looking for accommodation for the night. From inner city hotels to boutique accommodation, we have you covered for a relaxing night away.

Visit The Attractions

Why not head along to the Christchurch Art Gallery for a few hours of culture or visit the beautifully restored Arts Centre and Canterbury Museum or take a leisurely stroll through the Botanic Gardens and expansive Hagley Park. There are so many activities and attractions to choose from. 

Hit The Shops

Treat yourself to some shopping at one of the many inner city bespoke and boutique shops as well as major brands in the heart of our city. It’s easy to spend a few hours checking out the retail offerings all within easy walking distance of each other. Indulge in some Christchurch shopping.

Go For Dinner

Trying to narrow it down to just one restaurant will be hard. Lucky, the city is so inviting and will welcome you back with open arms. Check out the dining options.
