    ANTARCTICA…

    THE COOLEST FUN IN CHRISTCHURCH

    Experience the wonder and magic of Antarctica without leaving Christchurch, at one of New Zealand’s best, award winning tourist attractions.

     

    The International Antarctic Centre is your destination for authentic, interactive fun and provides an exciting experience of Antarctica for visitors of all ages. It doesn’t matter whether you’re 2 or 92 – there’s hours of fun here for everyone.

    We are located next to Christchurch International Airport and open every day of the year from 9am – 5.30pm.

    You’ll visit ‘Antarctica’ the snow and ice experience, survive an Antarctic Storm, learn about life in modern day Antarctica and Scott Base, and hang out with Little Blue Penguins!  There’s also the famously exciting Hagglund ride and an awesome simulated 4D cruise, Happy Feet 4D, plus heaps more!

    It’s quite possibly the closest you’ll get to Antarctica without mounting your own expedition!
