My Queens Birthday Weekend plans were set when friends Caitlin and Laura bought car which was for sale in Christchurch and mapped out a three day Christchurch to Picton road trip to bring it back to Wellington. Kirsty and I came along for the ride. We flew into Christchurch on the Friday night to play tourists there before driving to Hanmer Springs, Kaikoura and finally Picton to catch the Interislander ferry back to Wellington. Here are the highlights.We also took the Gondola up to the top of the Port Hills and drove around Littleton trying to find a park to visit the popular Saturday market there. If you’re visiting Christchurch with kids, I have fond memories of the Antarctic Centre from my childhood.I opted to stay in bed on Sunday morning instead of climbing Colonial Hill but the Snapchats I received proved it was worth the climb in the -1 degree chill.
Are you a fan of road trips? Have you taken a Christchurch to Picton road trip in New Zealand?
