    What to Expect
    Make your way to the base of the Queenstown gondola, located within walking distance from downtown. Take a seat on the gondola for an exciting ascent to Bob's Peakat Skyline where the Stratosfare Restaurant and Bar awaits. 

    During the ride, soak up the magnificent mountain views of the Remarkables, Coronet Peak, Queenstown and the aquamarine waters of Lake Wakatipu — part of Southern Lakes region of New Zealand's South Island. 

    On arrival at the skyline restaurant, fill your plate with a delicious buffet, with your choice of 4-course lunch or 6-course dinner. Sink your teeth into local favorites including South Island salmon, seafood, salads, roast meats and desserts. If you’d like, order a drink in the fully licensed bar (own expense) to complete this unique dining experience.

    With your round-trip ticket, reboard the gondola for the ride back down to the base.

    If you’re in Queenstown on Christmas Day or New Year’s Eve, enjoy a round-trip gondola ride, festive buffet, live entertainment and two luge rides. 

    Christmas Day:Lunch and dinner include an appearance from Santa. Christmas dinner has two seating times to choose from. Please note: the Kiwi Haka is closed for Christmas.

    New Year's Eve:Select from two seating times for dinner. Please note: the Kiwi Haka is not included.

    Highly recommend. Took a Ferg Burger up there and ate it. Can’t get much more ‘Queenstown’ than that!

    The ride to the top and view is spectacular. The view from the restaurant is amazing. The cue going in is a bit long but worth the wait. The buffet food is delicious, well prepared and presented. The variety is very good with meats, seafood...More

    Amazing views and incredible food which is also halal! Make sure you book ahead and if you have the dollars to splurge, book the premium lunch/dinner experience so you have front row of the views

    A trip to Queenstown is incomplete without taking a Gondola ride to the top of this hill. The views are breathtaking to say the least. Additionally, one may opt for the luge rides or just sit down and admire the sunset.

    We really enjoyed the ride & view from the restaurant. The food quality/variety could be better. The experience on the whole was pretty awesome.
