Yes the views looking over Christchurch, crossing the patchwork fields of the Canterbury Plains, to the jagged Southern Alps mountains tall and grand in the distance, are totally awesome!
AND then keep looking around you and there's the sweep of Lyttelton Harbour and beyond and it's all 360' totally awesome!
The gondola takes you up to the top of the Port Hills which is actually the rim of extinct volcano which enables you have complete surround views of all that there is to see!
I thoroughly enjoyed the geology history lesson on THE TIME TUNNEL animation ride. This is inclusive of the ticket to ride the gondola.
Along with the views is the pleasant Red Rock Café. The lunch menu was good as was the brew - a good coffee.
All in all - a place to spend a relaxing time enjoying the views and enjoying the whole of the experience of soaring above Christchurch.
I'll be back!
