For a “top” experience in Christchurch (15 minute drive from central city), enjoy a relaxing ride to the summit of the Port Hills. Spectacular 360 degree views of the city, Lyttelton Harbour, the majestic Southern Alps and Canterbury Plains. Plenty to see and do - experience the Time Tunnel Ride, go shopping, relax and enjoy a snack or beverage at the Red Rock Cafe.

Beautiful views, but obviously a very touristy attraction, therefore overpriced. They also print out photos and try to get you to buy them. The photos are then thrown out if you say no.. very wasteful. Overall, I would recommend coming here if you're in Christchurch.....More

You are in Christchurch then you must visit the Gondola. Its 25 bucks each person up-down. But the views that you get from top are mesmerizing. The best part is that you are not bound in a building like other places. Here you can go...More

Well worth the short drive out of town for the views of CHC and the bay opposite. Good value for money.
