Gondolas are a easy trip up the Cashmere hills. Cafe at top that has good family food and a selection of hot and cold options. As it sits on the peak get great views over Christchurch and also into Harbour.

We enjoyed the gondola ride and the complimentary time tunnel. Unfortunately I brought a $17.50 BLT for lunch. The bacon resembled plastic and was quite frankly the worst BLT I've ever had. What a shame, we won't be back.
