Expect winding roads. Good view of Christchurch up port hills but we enjoyed the ride down from port hills to Lyttleton more as it was a nice scenic drive.

Great place for a family hike or dog walking, nice mountain and ocean views all around, and very easy walks.

We took the gondola up without realising there was a road to the top! The ride was interesting but not really all that scenic so the car would have been the cheaper option as we had travelled in gondolas elsewhere. Good walks from the gondola station around the top to see the views.

Great views over Christchurch from the Port Hills. Victoria Park is a good place to start with vistas for 180° from the Southern Alps to Pegasus Bay.

You go over these hills from Sumner area of Christchurch,But the road through to the Piort of Lyttleton is blocked since the 2011 Earthquake.However if you want just views you can go part of the way and walk .
