Fantastic place to see down over Lyttelton and the surounds. Very pleasant drive up there too, and its a good way to suss out if the gondola is worth doing.

The mountains the views but such. Pity a lot is still out of bounds because of the earthquake but what is still open is well worth a visit

A really iconic part of the City and worth spending a few hours out and about on the Port Hills in any trip to the City. Great views

Vising ChCh and decided to drive to Lyttelton. Went over the Port Hills. Stunning views on a sunny day. Even though the road through to Lyttelton is not open after the earthquakes it is well worth the trip to look around.
