A fairly standard gondola ride, great views from the top. Cafe at the top was fairly reasonable price wise, that it’s worth staying for a quick coffee. We choose to walk down the Bridal Path on the way back as the weather was ok, this...More

What a visit.... The weather cleared and on a quiet Monday we were treated at the top of the gondola to a fantastic view of Christchurch then the ability to walk round on the Crater walk overlooking signing Lyttelton. Unbelievably beautiful.

The Gondola gives you an excellent 369 degrees view of Christchurch from the summit. It is complimented by a shirt but informed presentation on the Canterbury district

Thanks for visiting the Gondola. The Time Tunnel at the top is a great way to learn more about our city and local history. Rose:)

This is a great way to take a trip to the top of the mountain and get spectacular views of the city. Don’t forget to go below and see the trip through time. An absolute must do while in town. Easy to get to.
