Skyline Gondola

The Skyline Gondola is located just a few minutes from the city centre of Queensland, New Zealand, and offers some of the most spectacular views in the world. The Skyline Gondola is a lift that takes passengers to the top of Bob’s Peak that is nearly a kilometre in the sky, making it the highest lift in the Southern Hemisphere. From safely inside the gondola, you will be treated to majestic views of Queensland and the surrounding sights including The Remarkables, Coronet Park, and Lake Wakatipu, making this one of the most scenic rides found anywhere in the world.

  • Take the exciting luge ride from the top of the peak and enjoy amazing views of Queensland as you speed down the hill, but there is also a slower, more scenic route for those who don’t want to go too fast.
  • Have a delicious meal in the Skyline Gondola Restaurant and enjoy a bird’s eye view of Queensland while you eat.
  • Stop by the café on the weekends where you will be treated to a traditional Maori performance that includes authentic songs and dance.

The Skyline Gondola is just a five-minute walk from the city centre of Queensland, so the easiest way to get there is on foot. Cycling is also quite popular in Queensland and the city has a network of bicycle trails that can get you to the Skyline Gondola quickly. Those who don’t want to walk or ride can take a short taxi ride from the city and there are also buses that go directly to the entrance for the Skyline Gondola. The gondola can be crowded during peak hours, so the best time to go is late in the afternoon.

really lovely hotel
Bed linen and comfort of beds was top notch. Beds a little on the small side. Rooms had nice modern decor but a table for the outside patio would have been a help.
