Such lovely views of Chch on top. You can also walk or drive (not too sure about drive) to the top. I recommend the time tunnel.

This is a good place to get out of town and see some nice views. There are several paths around the gondola building. The little cafe has reasonable lunches. I took the shuttle from the museum, but there is public transportation, too.

The gondola ride is $30 return and certainly worth the ride The 369 degree views are spectacular and the cafe at the top is quite pleasant

There is nothing like a mountain top view to get an appreciation for the area. The gift shop and cafeteria are better than average while the panoramic views (if the weather cooperates) are wonderful. Do not bother if the weather is poor.

To get to the gondola it’s a 20 min shuttle bus journey from the museum, if you do not have your own transport. Once you get there is a short journey to the top where you are treated to some excellent views and there are...More

We recently visited the Christchurch Gondola on a clear day with just a few clouds in the sky. The price was $30 return per adult. Pricy, but not too bad for a party of two. The views are stunning and there are some interesting displays...More

The gondola was our first activity on the South Island, and provided us with a great introduction to the beautiful scenery ahead. Take your time, do the crater rim walk, sit in a rock looking out over the world...it's beautiful.

Thank you for your enquiry. The Gondola opens at 10am daily, and you would likely need to leave just prior to 11:30am to arrive at the airport by 12pm. 1.5 hours would be plenty of time to spend at the Gondola: the trip... More
