Under $100 / Australia

There’s plenty to see and do in Christchurch, New Zealand; you just need to know where to look.

Start with some sightseeing and exercise while walking through Hagley Park and Botanic Gardens. Located right in the center of the city, it has been part of the landscape since it was planted to commemorate a royal union back in the 1860s.

 

For a little shopping and strolling, head to one of the city’s many local markets. Feel like a local at The Riccarton Market on Sundays, find homemade pastries and cooking demonstrations at the Christchurch Farmer’s Market or fill up on Fridays with street food on Cathedral Square in center city.

 

Take a walk on the wilder side at Quail Island, an uninhabited island near Christchurch. Hike the scenic landscape. Splurge on a cruise vessel for $30 a ticket, or talk to your hotel concierge about other possible options.

 

For about $20 a ticket you can visit the Canterbury Museum, or see the sights by walking around Brighton pier and the Bridle Path Walk.

 

Whatever you decide to do, you can easily fill the day with affordable attractions, free sightseeing and lots of fresh air. Save your pennies for fun experiences, fresh food and a few splurges as you explore.
