"Shopping malls" Top 5 Page for this destination the 4 main Shopping Malls Tip by fishandchips

There are several very good malls around Christchurch to shop at. Northlands (Main North Rd), The Palms (Marshlands Rd), Westfields (Riccarton Rd) and Eastgate (Linwood Ave) are the main ones with Barrington (Barrington St) and South City (Colombo St) Malls smaller versions.

The Palms is probably the best having several good food options (food court inside & restaurant/bars outside) and Reading movie complex with the biggest, most comfortable seats anywhere. Next is Westfield then Northlands - both having movie options.

If you are not sure how to get to any of these Malls you can jump onto the Orbiter Bus which drives a loop linking all of these Malls. The cost is only $2.50 for up to 2 hours of travel (so you can jump on, jump off)

What to buy: The malls have everything from books to clothes to sporting goods so it's down to what you want at the time.

Directions: There is a green bus THE ORBITER which does the circuit around all the 4 malls http://www.metroinfo.org.nz/routes/orbitor_r.htm This link shows the route of the Orbiter Bus
