Trip Planner: South Pacific / New Zealand / South Island / Canterbury Region / Christchurch / Christchurch Gondola
Christchurch Gondola takes you across the sparkling cityscape and up to the top of the hill, which offers panoramic views over the ocean shore, plains, a lake, and a harbor nestled in a sunken volcanic crater. At the summit 500 m (1,640 ft) above sea level, a time tunnel provides an automated ride through the natural and social history of the region, including the blazing depths of a volcano, a native New Zealand forest, and the early settlements of Christchurch. Amenities include a shop and a cafe. Be sure to bring a windproof jacket, and note that children must be accompanied by adults.

Fantastic! Wonderful experience with the kids! They loved it! Great way to see a beautiful view of the Garden City! Revisiting my hometown this was a must for my children. You can go for walks once at the top so bring shies for walking if you plan on doing one of the walks. A new ride at the top takes you through the history of Aotearoa and is fantastic. Great day out!
Fantastic view! The tunnel experience was educational and cool. Shop have various things to look at, bought another jacket for my husband, affordable, practical and not bad quality. Food is OK and prices similar to other places but service is good.
