Christchurch Gondola

Soar suspended above the valleys as the birds fly beneath your cable car. Enjoy breathtaking views of the Christchurch cityscape, over the Canterbury Plains out to the mighty Southern Alps and the dramatic hills of Banks Peninsula.

What you need to know

For safety reasons, children must be accompanied by a paying adult. The summit station sits on a rocky hillside. Gondola staff are always there during operating hours, but parents must watch over their children. Dress warmly on the day you visit and bring a windproof jacket so you can fully enjoy the outdoor viewing galleries

Devonshire Teas are available on request at the Red Rock Cafe. Please email [email protected] or call 03 384 0310 for bookings and details.
