Christchurch Gondola

Address:
10 Bridle Path Rd, Christchurch, New Zealand, 8140 - View the map

Ride in our new-look cable cars and experience the exciting changes at the top. We look forward to seeing you!

Soar suspended above the suburbs as the birds fly beneath your cabin. The Christchurch Gondola whisks you nearly a kilometre to the Crater Rim. The Port Hills, a collapsed crater rim of an extinct volcano which exploded six million years ago, shelters Lyttelton's sparkling harbour. To the west, the Southern Alps seem close in the clear pure air and to the East, the ocean and the sky stretch as far as the eye can see.

Experience the Time Tunnel, a dramatic reconstruction of the history of the Port Hills and Christchurch. Watch subterranean forces unleash molten magma to rip rocks apart. See life-size dioramas of the early voyagers, Polynesian and then European, making landfall after months of travel.

Revive your spirits with a snack at the new Red Rock Cafe, and browse what is on offer in the shop. Hop back on the Gondola for the 360° views to get back to the Base station.

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 tourist attractions in Christchurch and you will never forget your Gondola experience!

Summer (1st October to 31st March) 10am - 5pm
