Christchurch Gondola

You may know it as a cable car, others refer to it as a Gondola. But whatever you call it, this trip is one of the must-do sightseeing attractions in Christchurch.

Situated on the Port Hills of Christchurch City, the Summit Station of the Gondola provides spectacular panoramic views from its elevation at 500 metres above sea level. One of the "must-do" sightseeing attractions in Christchurch, the Gondola offers a unique Christchurch sightseeing experience that you’ll never forget. 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.

At the summit of Mt Cavendish, experience the Time Tunnel ride, a dramatic reconstruction of Christchurch history. Revive your spirits with a snack at the Red Rock Café, and browse what is on offer at the Shop at the Top.
