View Christchurch from the best possible vantage point - high above! - with a ride aboard the modern, newly-refurbished cars of the Christchurch Gondola for some unmatched views of this popular New Zealand city. You'll rise above the suburbs of this picturesque city as you board the gondola at ground level and then head above all the local highlights such as the Port Hills, the shimmering harbour of Lyttleton, and the Southern Alps in the distance.

Once you've reached the top, you'll have the opportunity to participate and visit a number of different attractions such as the Red Rock Cafe (a fully licensed venue ideal for enjoying a beverage and admiring the great views) or take a ride on the Time Tunnel (that showcases a reconstruction of the area's historical background).

Regardless of your choice of activities, a trip on the Christchurch Gondola is simply a must-do if you're visiting the area - so grab your tickets online today!

Very good experience. Loved the views. The booking process via Experience Oz was so easy. Hassle free experience. I even got the best deal via Experience Oz. I recommend anyone travelling to Christchurch to take the gondola tour via Experience Oz.
Definitely coming back. Highly recommended for anyone travelling to Christchurch.

A Fantastic view from the top of the gondola Cafe.

We can see the Christchurch city on the gondola plus some sheep's eating grass when we look down from gondola. When we arrive at the top, the views are so great. We can see both views of Christchurch and Lyttleton while we enjoy food in the Café. Recommend it for locals and passengers.

This is a must do

This is a must do. It's a great way to get a birds-eye view of the city and also experience a gondola ride up to the top. Views are incredible and there are different patches you can hike to once you are at the top. Can easily spend a couple of hours here.

Vue 360°

Vue 360°, superbe, magnifique sur tout Christchurch. Heureusement qu’il y’a le Tram pour visiter différents endroits de la ville et de pouvoir constater les vestiges du Tremblement de Terre de 2011. Je recommande vivement de prendre le package car sur place c’est plus cher.
