Where better than to enjoy stunning views of Queenstown, Lake Wakatipu and the Southern Alps than from to the of the Skyline Gondola? Marvel at the deep blue of the lake and snow top mountains as you ascend the gondola.
If you’re after something a little more adventurous, take in the views as you zip down the mountain on the Luge, paraglide back to town or choose from one of the 27 world-class mountain biking trails.

The Kiwi Birdlife Park is moments away from Brown’s Boutique Hotel, right near Skyline Gondola. See New Zealand’s most famous native bird, the Kiwi. and view other native species including the Morepork, Kakariki and Antipodes Island Parakeet up close as you wander through the park.
Make the most of your time with an audio tour or attend one of the daily animal shows and talks where you’ll be able to feed the birds and encounter Tuatara’s.
