    What to Expect
    Make your way to the base of the Queenstown gondola, located within walking distance from downtown. Take a seat on the gondola for an exciting ascent to Bob's Peakat Skyline where the Stratosfare Restaurant and Bar awaits. 
    During the ride, soak up the magnificent mountain views of the Remarkables, Coronet Peak, Queenstown and the aquamarine waters of Lake Wakatipu — part of Southern Lakes region of New Zealand's South Island. 
    On arrival at the skyline restaurant, fill your plate with a delicious buffet, with your choice of 4-course lunch or 6-course dinner. Sink your teeth into local favorites including South Island salmon, seafood, salads, roast meats and desserts. If you’d like, order a drink in the fully licensed bar (own expense) to complete this unique dining experience.
    With your round-trip ticket, reboard the gondola for the ride back down to the base.
    If you’re in Queenstown on Christmas Day or New Year’s Eve, enjoy a round-trip gondola ride, festive buffet, live entertainment and two luge rides. 
    Christmas Day:Lunch and dinner include an appearance from Santa. Christmas dinner has two seating times to choose from. Please note: the Kiwi Haka is closed for Christmas.
    New Year's Eve:Select from two seating times for dinner. Please note: the Kiwi Haka is not included.

    Well worth the cost and experience. Great views, service and setting. Food was a great international blend, along with a healthy serving of New Zealand's very own butter and cheese.

    My wife and I went for an anniversary dinner and were not disappointed. The meal was great, so many choices, but the view was amazing. Get the window seating, it is well worth the extra cost.

    We went there for sunset and dinner. So obviously it is dark after dinner, so not much fun to do the trails then. You could come up earlier, do the walking trails before sunset, and then take the Gondola down after dinner... More
