This was easy to get to with plenty of parking when we arrived at 7pm, if you visit earlier you may have to park further away with a slight incline to walk up. The views are beautiful and plenty of photo opportunities on the platform. The buffet was excellent with a wide range of food to choose from, staff were very accommodating and helpful when we were initially not able to make our planned booking due to road wash out, they made it for the following day!

A must do event for a Queenstown visit. A perfect beginning of any South Island visit, great view and a "Best Ever" Buffet

A must-do activity whilst in Queenstown is to take a gondola ride to the Skyline and enjoy the superb views. Do this in the evening and you enjoy watching the town light up as the sun goes down. To add further delight to the trip enjoy a multi-course buffet in the Skyline restaurant. Lots of good food to choose from whilst taking in the panoramic views.
