Christchurch Travel Guide

Q: How do tours of natural hot thermal geysers, such as in Rotorura, NZ run to a timed rota so that when tourist arrive at an advertised time each day, the guide gives his speech, then miraculously the geyser blows??
A: An excellent question considering how difficult nature can be to predict. Our understanding is that geysers that erupt frequently, say 20+ times per day, can often be quite predictable and run more or less to a timetable. For example, itís reckoned that eruptions of the Old Faithful geyser in Yellowstone Park can be predicted within a +/- 10 minute window.

Andrew Dommett says:
"Things to do around Christchurch. Definitely Bottle Lake for mountain biking. You can also mountain bike and walk/run in the Port Hills. There is surfing at New Brighton beach. In the central city Hagley Park has a number of paved running tracks and if you go in the entrance next to Christ's College (Rolleston Ave/Armagh St) then follow the track around the edge of the park north there is an outdoor gym circuit (sit up boards, monkey bars, balance beam, jumps, etc all spread out along a footpath). If you run the whole thing it's a 3 km loop."

"Beautiful area with lots to do. When the sun is shining the place has a wonderful atmosphere. Most activities are in walking distance. Enjoy the view."
