Enjoy an unforgettable dining and stargazing experience from the best vantage point in Queenstown!
Relax and take in 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.
You'll be carried above Queenstown and Lake Wakatipu to the top of Bob's Peak, where you'll enjoy the best views in the region unfolding before your eyes. You get to experience a spectacular 220 degree panorama with breath-taking views of Coronet Peak, The Remarkables, Walter and Cecil Peak and, of course, Queenstown.
Once at the top, enjoy a sumptuous buffet dinner at Skyline's Stratosfare Restaurant and Bar. The menu is inspired by iconic New Zealand cuisine and infused with international influences. Stratosfare offers something for everyone, including fresh seafood, great vegetarian options and delectable desserts.
This is the ideal place for that special night out and the best place in Queenstown to watch the sun go down. If you want to bag the best seat in the house, book the Premium Dining Experience to guarantee a window seat view and a complimentary house drink when you arrive.
After dinner, it's time to watch the night sky. Explore the galaxy and learn about the stars, nebulae and planets that make up our solar system and beyond. You'll be accompanied by knowledgeable and experienced stargazing guides at Bob's Peak where, with some powerful telescopes, you'll be amazed by sights not visible to the naked eye. To keep you warm you'll have complimentary use of Canada goose-down jackets. Afterwards, enjoy a drink in the specialist theatre while checking out recent photos and videos from current NASA missions.
