Skyline Gondola up Bob's Peak in Queenstown

The energetic (or mad?) walk to the top of Bob’s Peak in Queenstown though most choose the relaxing Skyline Gondola. Whatever the method, rewards are spectacular 180+ degree views over Queenstown, sparkling Lake Wakatipu and surrounding snow-capped mountain ranges. In early autumn leaves turn a burnished gold making for a superb contrast with the sapphire blue waters of Lake Wakatipu.

On the peak, adrenalin seekers ride the weaving luge tracks on small carts while others take a stroll along forested trails or enjoy panoramic views over a steaming cup of hot chocolate – priced at the same lofty heights as the viewpoint.

Welcome to Travel Wonders
My name is Mark and I’m a keen traveller. In fact, over the last 25 years, I’ve travelled to every continent and over 80 countries. This blog is about the most memorable destinations – the places I regard as the travel wonders of the world. I’m also a keen photographer, and have taken nearly all the photos you’ll see. During my travels, I’ve met some incredible people, seen inspiring places, viewed extraordinary wildlife and scenery and had some amazing experiences, and I’m writing these stories not only to entertain but primarily to inspire others to discover their own travel wonders.
