We drove up halfway to see the view this summer, but you don't really see the magnificence until you go up the mountain fully. We were able to go paragliding off here and the view was absolutely breathtaking.

A summer drive to the ski resort almost at the top of Coronet Peak is certainly worth the effort. There was barely anyone else there but the silence and the views made for a relaxing break from busy Queenstown. It wasn't far out of Queenstown and we visited it on the way back from Arrowtown.

We hiked to the peak last week - a summer tramp, no snow. This is another hike for summer visitors - the 360 degree views from the top are stunning. A bit of fitness would help, but anybody can do this. A great family walk.

We went in December so no snow but the views were still stunning. Fun just watching the hang gliders. The toilets really need some work though. Pretty disgusting.

Was a nice drive up to the top - had quite good weather, was misty cloud at the very peak. Would be lovely in winter with all the snow
