Christchurch Gondola

Soar suspended above the suburbs as the birds fly beneath your cabin. The Christchurch Gondola whisks you nearly a kilometre to the Crater Rim at the top of the Port Hills with stunning 360° views.

Stunning 360° views from 500 metres above sea level - to the west gaze across the sparkling cityscape of Christchurch, over the Canterbury Plains to the high peaks of the Southern Alps. To the south and east are dramatic views of Banks Peninsula, Lake Ellesmere and Lyttelton Harbour formed in a sunken volcanic crater. Looking north the beaches of Pegasus Bay and the Pacific Ocean unfold to the distant Kaikoura Peninsula.

Experience the Time Tunnel, a dramatic reconstruction of the history of the Port Hills and Christchurch.

Sit back, relax and soak up the stunning views with a snack at the Red Rock Cafe, and enjoy quality shopping at the "Shop at the Top."

This trip is one of the must do tourist attractions in Christchurch.
