Skyline Gondola and Restaurant, Queenstown: 41 reviews and 98 photos
If you are feeling energetic, and it's a nice day, why not walk up the hill to the top Gondola terminal. Along Lake Esplanade, towards Glenorchy, you will find the beginning of the track, near the roundabout that branches off to Fernhill. There are various routes to take, but the trek to the Gondola takes approximately 1 hour. Of course this is a bit of a climb up a hill, but you can pace yourself depending on your fitness, and you don't exactly need to be an athlete to do this. It's a nice walk through the trees, and is a relatively good track. You will need, however, to wear flat shoes. You do cross a few other tracks, so take note at the bottom, of the route you should be taking. I took this photo of the map on the day I did the walk, so I could zoom in on the picture to check my route as I went.
Once up at the top gondola terminal, you can go to the Souvenir shop to buy a gondola ticket down, for $10.
