Skyline Gondola, Restaurant & Luge sits high atop Bob Peaks Peak overlooking Queenstown, Lake Wakatipu & the surrounding Remarkable Mountains.
Skyline is uniquely different for two reasons as no where else in Queenstown affords such spectacular panoramic views of the region. The complex is also only accessed by scenic gondola cableway. The gondola system itself can easily transport 700 people in one hour, with up to four guests per cabin. There is also a helicopter pad on-site.
Skyline has numerous private function rooms, catering for Conferences, Incentives, Weddings and any other special events.
The Complex also boasts a large Buffet Restaurant open 365 days a year for buffet dinner, Lounge Bar, Cafe, Souvenir Shop, Kiwi Haka performances, two Luge tracks and walking tracks.
Skyline Gondola Restaurant & Luge is only a 12 minute drive from Queenstown International Airport, with the base terminal being a five minute walk from the town centre and most major hotels.
Skyline is perched 790 metres above sea level and affords stunning panoramic views of lake and mountains.
Catering is done on-site by a team of highly qualified and innovative international Chefs.
Private function room menus are not restricted to buffets, but mainly feature "summer" and "winter" table d'hote options utilising the freshest produce available each season.
Skyline's cuisine is not only delicious, but artfully presented. Our service staff are carefully selected, specially trained and experienced - thus ensuring every guest has a memorable experience.
Our beverage list includes specialty wines from not only New Zealand, but the famous Central Otago vineyards. One, 2, 3 and 4 hour Beverage Packages are also available.
Theming is an outstanding way to enhance any function, or just take in the spectacular views themselves as every venue has floor to ceiling windows.
Luging is a Skyline invention. Imagine two 800m concrete tracks, beginners and advanced, each taking approximately five minutes to complete. Luge carts have their own braking and steering systems. Luging is fun for all ages, is a great team building exercise, can be used as a breakout activity, and can also be combined with any event. Skyline Luge - once is never enough!
Kiwi Haka is Skyline's newest product. A contemporary high impact Maori cultural show operating out of a traditionally decorated theatre, holding 77 people. Shows are daily and last for 30 minutes with 6-8 performers. "Welcomes", which last 20 minutes, can be performed outside the regular theatre hours and environment - being the perfect introduction to NZ history and culture for every Conference or Incentive.
Standard audiovisual equipment is included in the hire fee of each venue. For specific inclusions, please ask for further details. Any additional equipment, lighting, sound or blackout curtains can be hired in on our client's behalf with advance notice.
