School Holidays and Mid-Winter Christmas!

The school holidays are nearly here once again and we’ve got some great things planned at our attractions, as well as some delicious winter dining ideas!

Winter School Holiday Activity Offer

Our annual Kids Go Free offer is back for the winter school holidays, with great deals on three of our top attractions guaranteed to keep your children occupied.

Gondola Rides

The Gondola is offering up to three children for free with each paying adult between 9-24 July inclusive. With awe-inspiring scenic views on the ride to the top of Mount Cavendish plus lots of fun things to do at the top station (including walking tracks, the upgraded Time Tunnel ride plus delicious fare from our café) the Gondola is a great way to keep the kids entertained. Buy your tickets online or from our friendly staff at the Gondola’s base station in the Heathcote valley.

Christchurch Tramway

We’re also offering our Tram Treasure Hunt again these school holidays! Purchase a map from our Tram Shop staff in Cathedral Junction for $5, answer the questions while listening to the commentary on board the Trams, and return your completed map to our Tram Shop staff to receive your treasure. Don’t forget that up to three children ride for free on the trams with each paying adult year-round – it’s great value, and there is always something new to see in our rebuilding city centre.

Jetboat Ride

If you would prefer the thrill of a high-speed jet boat ride, join us for an exciting adventure on the Waiau River on board our Hanmer Springs Jet during the school holidays! We’re offering a discounted family ticket rate of $249 for two adults and up to three children between 9-24 July inclusive. Bookings are essential, so check out our website for further information and and to book your tickets.

Delicious Winter Dining

We’re also hosting our very first Mid-Winter Christmas on the Tramway Restaurant at the end of July. Choose from our special Yuletide offerings or select your favourites from our winter menu – or mix and match dishes between both menus! Our Mid-Winter Christmas menu will only be available between 29-31 July, so bookings are essential. Check out our website to book your table or call our friendly Tram Shop staff on 03 366 7830 to reserve your seats.

Have you tried our delicious new lunch menu at the Gondola Restaurant yet? Child-friendly and featuring some new lunch offerings as well as some classic brunch staples, it’s the perfect spot to dine with a view at the weekends. The restaurant is open from 11:30am – 2:30pm Saturdays and Sundays and can be found on the first floor of the Gondola’s top station.
