Gondola - Hike - Bike - Cafe - Relax
Discover Coronet Peak in summer - no queues, just views!
No effort required - Remarkable 360° panoramas guaranteed.
Our sightseeing chairlift takes your family all the way to the top of 'The Peak' for unsurpassed panoramic views across Queenstown and the Southern Alps – then take a hike (freedom or guided), hire a bike and explore our purpose-made trails, or relax at our cafe and soak in the unique alpine environment of Coronet Peak.
Escape the bustle of town, and be in the mountains in just 20 minutes!
Self-drive or take one of our scheduled buses departing Queenstown every hour for a 16km / 20-minute drive on an easy sealed road with the Wakatipu Basin laid out below you.
Sit back and enjoy a chairlift ride to 1649m. Take in the world-famous views over the Wakatipu basin and across the Southern Alps. It’s Queenstown’s new view, suitable for all and perfect for families or maybe even an iconic wedding photo!
Take a short hike to the iconic Coronet summit for the perfect panorama. While you are on top of the world take a guided hike to Skippers Ridge and peek into another world, or go at your own pace and take one of our luxury picnic hampers along with you.
Purchase your ticket at our base building for a 2pm or 4pm guided adventure. In small groups our guides will take you on a short walk around the summit rocks and out towards Mt Aurum along the ridgeline. On the way you will be shown key points of interest and native flora as well as hear stories of the gold miners and farmers who settled this rugged land. Allow 75 minutes along rolling terrain, supportive footwear required. Minimum of 2 people required.
The Coronet downhill and cross country trails are open for mountain biking this summer.
More trails are in the pipeline throughout the season so expect a good time, no queues and easy access from Queenstown!

Bike rentals & workshop facilities available on the mountain.
Located right next to the base of the Coronet Express Chairlift and opening out onto a spacious sunny deck this is THE place to lunch this season! Even if you don't buy a biking or lift pass it's worth coming up to Coronet, enjoying the views and having the highest lunch in town!
Choose from our all-day menu and enjoy your meal with a hot or cold drink. We serve a range of cabinet food, perfect for when you are in a hurry and also create luxury hampers for two or more. Order one with your sightseeing pass and relax in the tussock high above the Wakatipu basin for a lunch to remember!
