For the best view of Queenstown, climb aboard the Skyline Gondola that will take you to the top of Bob’s Peak for a breath-taking panorama of the adventure capital of the world. Not only is the view from the destination picturesque, the journey to Bob’s Peak too is a real treat. Coronet’s Peak, The Remarkables and the Queenstown Gardens to name a few, are just some of Queenstown’s attractions that you’ll be able to spot.
One of the most popular activities here, apart from the dining atop the peak is the Luge Ride. From Bob’s Peak, hop on for a free airlift (by chair) about 100 m high for an 800 m Luge Ride down. The Luge cart is safe for all ages and you can enjoy a scenic view on the ride down and catch the airlift back to the starting line for another ride. There’s also a cultural Maori Kiwi Haka dance that takes place on the hill, the tickets for which can be purchased at the entrance.
- Prices range from $27 to $114.
- Skyline Queenstown Restaurant

Love the gondolas. It was so much fun going up the hill and watching the scenery go by. The view from the top was absolutely beautiful. Will be going again for a third time next time I’m in Queenstown
Spectacular views! A definite must go if you love seeing cities from a vantage point. As usual, go during sunset for an amazing view of Christchurch. Pro tip: use the windows on the building for a reflection shot of the entire Christchurch + mountain back drop. Truly amazing photo (see below for examples). The cable car ride up is also wonderful. One of the steepest cable car ride ever. There is also luge rides here. However, take note that the last sales close at 6/6:30pm. The luge does not go all the way down to the bottom of the mountain. It’s just at the top, but should be sufficient.
Great views of Queenstown - definitely worth tacking on a few extra dollars and going down the luge - lots of fun ! I would recommend leaving yourself a few hours if you do so - sometimes the queues can get quite busy. Probably one of Queenstown's best attractions.
I took a round trip to see Queenstown a little higher. Queenstown is already a beautiful city... but when you see it from above it's even better! If the weather is good then take the Skyline to see Queenstown becomes unavoidable !
Beautiful views on a clear day lovely gondola ride up. Excellent viewing platforms and other things to do once you get up to the top
