Day trips from Christchurch – Governors Bay


This first photo was taken upon getting to the top of the Christchurch Gondola. We actually walked up instead of taking the gondola, and to make it even more difficult we avoided the path, and followed the oil pipe that goes up along the side mountain – which I do NOT recommend! So steep, so so steep,  but the views at the top are worth it.















Taking a moment to stop and take it all in before getting into Governors Bay on top of the Port Hills.


If you’re after a delicious coffee / chocolate bite, a quick stop into the award winning She Universe is a must, but if its a big meal you’re after I would recommend heading across the road to Governors Bay Hotel, where they have an abundance of large outdoor tables.

Then take a stroll straight down Jetty Road, straight in front of these two locations and take in the Bay at its best.
