About Skyline Queenstown

From a simple roadway up Bob’s Peak in the early 1960s to the thriving multi-attraction business that it is today, Skyline Enterprises has a fascinating and fast-paced history.

From humble beginnings Skyline has been constantly evolving. For over 45 years now it has pioneered new beginnings, while providing Queenstown with a top quality visitor experience.

As a company Skyline has gone from strength to strength, creating a hugely successful niche business, within the relatively new market of tourism in New Zealand.

Skyline continues to invest and progress into further tourism ventures both domestically and internationally, especially concentrating on developing its successful Luge business.

Always striving to provide the best visitor experience possible, Skyline will continue to grow and evolve.
