Overview
More
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.

Stargazing was such a beautiful and educational experience! I've always been fascinated by space and stars and I learned so much! Our star guide Izzy was super fun and knowledgeable! We could tell she was passionate about everything she was telling us!

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!!!
