Stargazing in Queenstown

Skyline Stargazing Tours are closed for the season.

Journey into the hidden world of the Southern night sky with our awe-inspiring Stargazing tour, only a short Gondola ride from the heart of Queenstown! 

On clear nights, our knowledgeable stargazing guides will lead you up Bob’s Peak to a specially-constructed platform high above the Skyline complex, allowing for an unbelievably clear view of the night sky. Away from light pollution, high powered telescopes reveal stunning sights not visible to the naked eye. Some highlights of the tour are:

  • Learn to navigate using the iconic Southern Cross.
  • Explore the Milky Way and spot satellites and shooting stars.
  • Be captivated by the wonders that make up our galaxy while looking at stars, clusters and nebulae through state of the art 11” Celestron telescopes.
  • When visible, be amazed by the sight of other planets and galaxies.

After the 60-minute tour (approximately) you're welcome to stay longer and enjoy a complimentary cup of hot chocolate or mulled wine in our Stratosfare Bar.

Our Stargazing tour is weather dependent. In case the conditions are unsuitable for the outdoor experience, we will offer you the option to book for a tour at a later date (subject to availability) or receive a refund for the experience. 

A truly unique and memorable experience, Skyline Queenstown’s Stargazing tour is a must-do.
