Skyline Gondola, Restaurant & Luge in Queenstown

Apr 14, 2012
One of the first sights to captivate visitors to Queenstown is the distinctive outline of the Skyline complex high above town.

Views from the Skyline

The Skyline Queenstown is an easy 5 minute walk from the Queenstown Park Boutique Hotel and exclusively accessed by scenic  Gondola.  Skyline Queenstown is a ‘must-see’ attraction during your visit to Queenstown, New Zealand.
Reputed to be the steepest lift in the Southern Hemisphere, the gondola carries visitors high above Queenstown to the Skyline complex located on Bob’s Peak.
The best vistas in the region are found here, spread out in a spectacular 220 degree panorama.
Numerous observation decks around the complex offer breathtaking views of Coronet Peak & The Remarkables, over Queenstown and across Lake Wakatipu to Cecil and Walter Peaks. Truly magnificent and awe-inspiring.
