    Done the trip 3 times now and this was the best one yet. What made it so good was the personal sound system with a documentary. For the first time we were able to understand all the details of the scenery and the building of the line and viaducts. The carriage we were in was smooth riding and there was virtually no rail noise. The cafe was adequate and I had some excellent coffee. The food, while somewhat limited, was enjoyable. We also had an icecream. The trip could've been made safer for us as 80-year olds, if we could have had some service at our seat rather than a wobbly walk down the train to the cafe.

    Found this place totally by accident finding ourselves at a loose end and needing something to do. It’s a short drive from the City and once you are in the grounds it’s easy to navigate your way around. Just follow the boardwalk and there is no need to keep looking at the map provided. The reserve is split into three regions and each has something to offer for everyone. We loved the flow of the place and it was very well laid out. From the first viewing of the eels as you enter to finishing off with the kiwi it was great. The kea were one of our favourites as we got to sit and watch them being cheeky they even tried pecking at my wife’s handbag at one point but were magical to watch flying around. The kiwi house was also fascinating with I think four of them snuffling and scurrying around we could have stayed for hours watching them as at times you were so close to them. Even if you don’t have kids but love a little bush walk and wildlife, this is definitely worth the admission price.

    We enjoyed our trip on the gondola. It stopped three times on the way up which was a bit disconcerting. Otherwise the view from the top is good.

    The International Antarctic Centre is on the outskirts of Christchurch, the largest city on New Zealand's South Island, There are lots of things to do; among the most interesting sights are the Blue Penguins. You can take a ride in the Hagglunds, which are all-terrain vehicles, used in Antartica. The International Antarctic Centre is well worth a visit; allow hal a day.

    Very interesting indeed - but allow plenty of time to take it all in, especially the video interviews with people affected by the quakes. We thought two hours would be plenty but they had to ask us to leave after three hours, as they were closing!

    Stunning from start to finish.
    This was the third walk I did this month after the Heaphy and Rakiura tracks. All Very different and offering different landscapes and challenges. This was absolutely delightful and charming.
    The accomodation was unique, quirky, clean and comfortable with everything you need and options for all types of traveller.
    The walk itself offered stunning views, beautiful bush, waterfalls, swimming holes, long comfortable stretches and a few challenges and uphill climbs, all the wildlife and farmlife to satisfy every interest.
    Can not recommend this walk highly enough. Perfect for a two or three day hiking option in a stunning part of the country free of crowds and busy walkways.

    A park full of green areas that you would love in summer time. It is big for wandering around or sitting down to relax. Easy to access with lot of parking area.

    There s plenty of exhibits which were easily viewable. Everton was well explored and it would take more than one visit to read it all. Our daughters who are young teens loved the place and had fun exploring. Would visit again.

    Loved it! The wine tasting was so so generous and we had Olivia talking us through them all with her vast knowledge of the wines and the Pegasus brand. We had a lovely walk through the garden after and then stopped in a few other Waipara vineyards. We would highly recommend this as a stop and will 100% be back!
