I’m back in Queenstown for a few days and am so excited to explore!
One of the main attractions here is the gondola. The base is just outside of the main downtown area and it takes you to the top of Bob’s Peak. At the top, you can paraglide, go luge riding (not sure what you actually call it!) or bungi jump. There is even a zip line course and numerous mountain biking trails on the hillside.
The gondola is $35 roundtrip, so I decided to walk. Of course, right? 🙂
There’s a trail that starts at the base and leads you right to where people get off. It winds you through the mountain biking trails as well – often you need to stop to let the bikers through. It was definitely an “extreme” trail but these people were going so fast!
The zip line course is also situated throughout so every so often you can hear screaming people. I’m guessing you step off the below steps:
I’d be curious to know if a lot of the citizens of Queenstown were against putting the gondola in or not. You can definitely see it on the hillside, but I feel like it’s also become iconic with QT. Definitely offers more tourism for the city.
