Fodor's Review

For one of the best vantage points to view Christchurch, the Canterbury Plains, and Lyttelton Harbour head to Christchurch Gondola. At the top, you can journey through the Time Tunnel to experience the history and geological evolution of the Canterbury region. Afterward, sit with a glass of local wine at the Red Rock Café. Ride the gondola with your back to the Port Hills for the best views of the Southern Alps. The adventurous can walk or mountain-bike back down

(your bike can be transported to the top); it's steep in parts so watch your footing. If you don't have a car, hop on a number 28 bus from the city center or take a Gondola shuttle from the i-Site next to the Canterbury Museum (summer only).
