You will have plenty of time to stop for lunch at one of the many harbourside cafes, have a look around and get back to Christchurch before the supermarkets close to stock up for day 2. If you collect the vehicle later head 5 kms towards town to New World supermarket to pick up supplies and then settle in to the Meadow Park Holiday Park for the evening. Check out “The Strip” in Christchurch town where you will be spoilt for choice on where to dine.
