Taking a trip on the Skyline Gondola for a scenic overview of Queenstown is a must do on your visit. The trip up on the gondola offers some good views, but you are rewarding with clear, unobstructed views from the top of the surrounding area. The bonus is you can spend a lot of time up there. They have a variety of activities to do including luging, hiking, dining and shopping. Take a wander through the specialty shops for the perfect souvenir or go for a hike and watch the groups of mountain bikers take on the trail. It is also an amazing spot to watch the sunrise from and they also offer stargazing.
