Bus pick up outside Christchurch museum after purchasing our tickets at I-site. Since the weather was great we had a wonderful 360 degree view. Stopped for lunch in the cafe at the top of Mt. Cavendish, which wasn't that great, but we didn't expect much...More

We had perfect timing, 4.30pm winter afternoon ride up meant we got to see the sun setting and the city lighting up for the night. No long queues to ride up or down, and the Time Tunnel was a novel experience that our whole family...More

This is the way to take photographs! Glass-enclosded gondolas silently transport you across the landscape, giving jaw-dropping vistas in all directions. Highly recommend this, if you're not afraid of heights.
