Rotorua's Skyline Gondola with Dinner and Stargazing

Have a sumptuous dinner with spectacular dinner views, before exploring constellations, looking for a shooting star and discovering planets invisible to the naked eye with the Skyline Rotorua Stargazing experience.

Take a tranquil Gondola ride up Mt Ngongotaha, overlooking Lake Rotorua, then wind your way down via the Luge or if you prefer to descend by mountain bike, weave your way through one of the newly created park trails. Get the adrenaline pumping even more on the Zoom Zipline and the Sky Swing. For a more relaxed approach, take a stroll through the stunning nature trails with informative and interactive panels along the way.

Left feeling a little peckish? Head to the Food Market Kitchen or the Stratosfare Restaurant & Bar to fuel up again. While you’re there, why not also pop into the Volcanic Hills Wine Tasting Room and Winery while the kids explore the Jelly Belly Gallery and Store.

The Skyline Rotorua complex is just 5 minutes’ drive from central Rotorua, sitting atop Mt Ngongotaha providing unsurpassed views of New Zealand’s coolest hot spot. This is an all-weather must do attraction suitable for all ages.

On clear nights, Mt Ngongotaha is one of the top eight locations in New Zealand for stargazing where the dark clear skies blanketing Rotorua make for a breathtaking experience. Skyline Rotorua offers top-of-the-line telescopes to give stargazers the chance to view an amazing array of sights, from the iconic Southern Cross to nebulas, planets, the Milky Way and other galaxies.

After the 60-minute tour, you're welcome to stay longer and enjoy a complimentary cup of home-made hot chocolate in our Stratosfare Bar.

This buffet experience includes kitchen theatre, marketplace feel and cooked-to-order options, encouraging diners to have a little bit of everything.

Choose from venison, lamb, fresh fish, prawns, crayfish and morton bay bugs. Dessert includes a vast selection of classics, with chefs preparing fresh crepes on the spot.
