Port Information for "Lyttelton" Christchurch New Zealand

Tuesday, September 1, 2009

The port for Christchurch is a long ways from the city. The port is in a town called "Lyttelton". Lyttelton, is a nice little spot which sits on the mountain side. There are options to get to Christchurch, such as bus services offered by the city and you can generally buy tickets out at the pier for about $7 U.S. The cruise line won't tell you this, but it's there if you need it. There are usually people on the pier in neon jackets that can sell you the ticket. Keep in mind that a lot of people do this, so it can be a little crowded at first.

There is also a free shuttle which runs back and forth to Lyttelton. You can't just walk out of the port, as far as I remember. It's not safe to walk around the equipment, etc... I would say that it is easy to walk around Christchurch. If you're there early in the morning, not much will be open. Some people go in around 9 or 10 am for when the shops open. If you just want to see the city, itself, then there is no need to book a tour. I haven't written about Christchurch yet, but I will soon, with photos. Hope this helps for now.
