International Antarctic Centre

We are arriving in Christchurch on 19th December at 11am and already booked a domestic AirNZ flight to Queenstown that depart at 2pm.

Would we be able to tour the International Antarctic Centre given the time available and whether we need to purchase tickets since we have limited time?

Several big "ifs" -

#1. IF your international flight arrives on tine and

#2. IF you get through CQI in under an hour - and drop your bags at domestic, collect your boarding pass etc

Then you will need to be in the departure lounge by 1:30pm to commence boarding so this would leave you with a bit over an hour so you'd only need the "express tickets" - maybe time for the penguins and the blizzard room!!

There is no way I would risk trying to do that.

Hi all,

Thanks for the advice. If it is too risky to buy tickets given limited time we have, is the centre still worth visiting without purchasing ticket.
