"Located alongside the Christchurch International Airport,
the International Antarctic Centre is a family attraction - guaranteed to entertain you if you choose to make a visit. Here at the centre you get the opportunity to be taken on a ride in an all-terrain vehicle tour, to get alongside penguins and huskies - all while learning about expeditions through history and the future of humanity on the ice!
The Antarctic Centre continues to amaze with an ice tour featured in a 4D theatre that makes you feel as if you’re right there. There are endless opportunities for discovery, and the centre can’t wait to let you in! There are 7 different experiences here at the Antarctic Centre including the Storm Dome, the Hagglund Field trip, penguin rescue, the 4D theatre mentioned above, Antarctic Gallery, Generation Antarctica and lastly, the Antarctic Academy Programs. More information on these adventures is detailed on the centre’s website.
We also offer school holiday programs and birthday parties if you have adrenaline filled, restless kids! Here they will learn all about the first brave explorers, play games and make memories. The Centre is invested in educating the next generation of explorers on the Icey environment that is Antarctica.
So come along whether you’re a family, a group of friends or an individual eager to learn - we would love to have you!"
