International Antarctic Centre

The International Antarctic Centre is strategically located in the suburb of Harewood, Christchurch in New Zealand. It enjoys tourists from various parts of the world who flock around the Centre and bring thousands and thousands in revenue. The Centre is near the Christchurch International Airport. Amongst other stores are clothing stores from America and New Zealand, a post office, travel agency, administration office, and a warehouse. The centre also has the Antarctic Passenger Terminal and what has made this place famous — the Visitor Centre, which consists of the Antarctic exhibits, the bar, and a café.

  • Tour the Centre and experience the Antarctic snow storm room for indoor fun for all the family to enjoy, breathtaking little penguins at the NZ Encounter, with 26 penguins from the wild that have been rescued and require help.
  • Check out the exhilarating outdoor experience in the Hagglund, and have an exciting adventure ride on a genuine Antarctic terrain vehicle.
  • Do not miss the hospitality of the International Antarctic Centre, in Christchurch that has been awarded a prestigious NZ Tourism award. Also enjoy exclusive offers on the Antarctic products and delicious meals in the café and bar.
