Booking for lunch or Dinner at the Skyline restaurant over looking Queenstown is spectacular, with the ride up to the Skyline via the gondolas. All I can say is don’t eat to much breakfast before you go for lunch, & if your going for Dinner make sure you have a light lunch. The photos from the top are breathtaking in the daylight or at night. I did both on the same day, to get photos in daylight and nighttime. I pre booked not knowing how good the food would be. All in one ticket Gondola & food, well worth it.

The steepest gondola in the souther hemisphere. Its location is very central and very easy to find. Everyone staying in the center can easily walk to the base station. For me it was a lot of fun as it was also my first gondola experience in NZ. I was alone and they didn’t make me sit with others which was very good. About the restaurant I read the reviews and some were negative reviews about how inefficient the staff to bring the drinks. I must say my experience is just the opposite. The staff was very organized and my drink came immediately. There was wide range of food. The ice-cream was really delicious. I ate too much. :) My advice be sensible while eating. :)

Excellent experience, especially for those who have never taken a chopper before. Our original flight was supposed to happen a day back, but due to inclement weather we were informed that the flight could not continue. We were rescheduled to a morning one the following day and the sights with the weather were just splendid.
