The Christchurch Aerial Tram is erected on the Cavendish Hill, about 10 km southeast of the city. The cableway spans 862 meters and is very smooth and comfortable. From the foothills of the flock, you can reach the top of the mountain about 500 meters above sea level in about 10 minutes. From the observatory, you can enjoy 360-degree views of the plains, and the beautiful scenery of the Southern Alps, the South Pacific and Littleton Harbour.
