Overview

Perched high above Queenstown, keen stargazers have the opportunity to access a 'hidden world' not seen by the naked eye. Skyline Stargazing will take visitors to a specially-constructed area high above the Gondola, where there is no trespassing light, allowing for an unbelievably clear view of the night sky. Top-of-the line telescopes give stargazers the chance to view an amazing array of stunning sights, from the iconic Southern Cross, to nebulas, planets, the Milky Way and other galaxies.

A beautiful night for stargazing. Angelique was super knowledgeable and we had a brilliant night. Even if planets and astronomy aren’t your thing, you’ll be blown away by what’s up in the night sky. Definitely one to tick off while you’re in Queenstown.

Absolutely! They run all day long! When I was in Queenstown we were there at different times on our trip - morning, noon, and night. You will LOVE it! Ask for a stargazing tour with my son, Christian Crook - awesome time!!!
