Book - Skyline Gondola & Dinner

An exceptional way to recharge the batteries after an action packed day or to fuel the fire for the day to come.

Marvel at the stunning views as you ride the Skyline Queenstown Gondola - the steepest cable car lift in the Southern Hemisphere, and one of the must-do activities in Queenstown! Sit back and relax as the best views in the region unfold before your eyes and the Gondola carries you 450 metres above Queenstown and Lake Wakatipu to the top of Bob's Peak.

One at the top find your way to the Stratosfare Restaurant to feast on delicious cuisine, served up with the best views in town.

Stratosfare delivers iconic New Zealand dishes infused with international influences, from fresh New Zealand seafood to delectable desserts, there?s something for everyone. Guests can chat with chefs at live cooking stations and watch as they prepare the country?s finest produce, from South-land lamb and beef to hot mussels in a variety of house-made sauces. Indulge in seafood, delicious salads and perfectly cooked meats, all while enjoying spectacular views over Lake Wakatipu and the mountains.

After dinner, relax over a coffee and indulge your sweet tooth with a decadent dessert or two. Stratosfare?s offerings focus on a diverse menu that will excite the palate and engage the senses, while the panoramic view from the windows will captivate you day or night.

It's the ideal place for that special night out and the best place in Queenstown to watch the sun go down! With live music creating a relaxing atmosphere and never ending scenery to admire, you will be entertained as you dine on award winning cuisine.
