Skyline Gondola information
Hop aboard for fantastic views. At the top there's the inevitable cafe, restaurant, souvenir shop and observation deck, as well as the Queenstown Bike Park , Skyline Luge , Ledge Bungy , Ledge Swing and Ziptrek Ecotours . At night there are Māori culture shows from Kiwi Haka and stargazing tours (including gondola adult/child $85/45).
Walking trails include a loop track through the Douglas firs (30 minutes return). The energetic (or frugal) can forgo the gondola and hike to the top on the Tiki Trail and then continue on the Ben Lomond Track .
