Event description

Description

Step on board Antarctic aircraft before they head to the ice for the summer season. Meet the crews and check out a US Air Force C17, a RNZAF C130 Hercules, a historic Beaver and more. Learn about the people who work in Antarctica and what it is like to live on the coldest and windiest continent.

Entry to the tarmac is by free, time-allocated boarding passes which must be collected from the Check-in desk outside the Antarctic Centre.

Be sure to check out the displays by Christchurch's Antarctic organisations - try on Antarctic clothing, see what it's like to camp on the Ice, meet huskies, and learn about what people do down in Antarctica. There will also be food vendors on site and other awesome activities for all ages!


Parking is available for $5 donation all day off Peter Leeming Road (funds raised going to Plunket).


Book your ticket in advance to guarantee your time on the tarmac. Tickets are allocated in 30 minute time slots.

Only a limited number of tickets will be available on the day, but we can't guarantee that your preferred time will be available.

Play it safe and book your time slot today!




The event will be cancelled only because of strong winds or extreme weather.

You will be notified by email if the event is cancelled.
