What you can expect

The Moa zipline adventure tour will serve as the perfect starter to your adventure experiences in New Zealand's Queenstown region! The Moa is comprised of four flying foxes which both start and finish at the top of the Skyline Gondola and is designed to start low and slow and gradually build your confidence as it gets progressively longer, higher and faster. All ages will love the interaction that this guided aerial tour - which lasts approximately two hours - has to offer.

Providing the best framed views of Lake Wakatipu, you'll traverse the forest in a way that will never be forgotten - the perfect tour activity for families, groups and those who have never tried ziplining before!

This was one of the trip highlights for me

This was one of the trip highlights for me! It was fun, informative and the guides were super friendly. I would go back to NZ just to do this again.

If my mum can do this

If my mum can do this, anyone can! This was a great way to end our stay in Queenstown. The staff were super kind, reassuring & entertaining. I wish we continued on to the 6 lines (World's Steepest) but regardless 4 lines were a good amount. Only downside (and out of their control) is the temperature, take layers! Would definitely do this again, thanks guys!
