What is currently open in Christchurch, NZ?

Jump to last reply

We're headed to New Zealand in just over a month. Our first 3 nights are in Christchurch. We kept these reservations even after the earth quake since we figured we'd have jet lag and it was as good a place to recover as any. We plan to head to Akaroa one day, but we'll still have another day in/around Christchurch.

Can any locals tell me what is currently open that we could visit. I know the cathedral is obviously out and I just checked the website tonight and saw that Canterbury Museum is closed until at least the end of June. Any other recommendations? We thought about heading up to Kaikouri for the day for whale watching but I'm not sure if that will be too far for a day trip. How much of the city center is still off limits?

Thanks for the update.
