Discover the night sky, tour the stars and beyond with our expert Astronomy guide. Perched high above Queenstown, and surrounded by mountains, stargazers have the opportunity to access a hidden world not seen by the naked eye. Top-of-the line Celestron telescopes give you the chance to view an amazing array of stunning sights, from the iconic Southern Cross, to nebulas, planets, the Milky Way and other galaxies. We can now guarantee our Stargazing experience will go ahead every night, no matter the weather.
We will always endeavour to run Stargazing tour outside but if the weather is unsuitable then guests can opt-in our indoor Stargazing tour instead.
Skyline Stargazing is great for all knowledge levels and no telescope experience is necessary. Return Gondola ride included.
