Christchurch City Tram


Suitable for all ages

The tram is a great way for little legs to see the central areas without getting too tired. Good for everyone if it’s raining as the 17 stops take in many of the central tourist sites along the route. The driver gives a running commentary and actively involves the kids onboard during the journey. It’s a great way to see the devastation left by the earthquakes as well as admire some of the new building work that’s going on.

Check out the route map here.

You might want to tie in a tram ride if you’re going to the Imagination Station, The City Art Gallery, the Discovery Room @ the Canterbury Museum or C1 Espresso Cafe
