Feel at home in Queenstown

Queenstown is the Southern Hemisphere’s premier four season lake and alpine resort. Surrounded by majestic mountains and nestled on the shores of crystal clear Lake Wakatipu, Queenstown’s stunning scenery is inspiring and revitalising.

Queenstown is a ‘Natural Theme Park’, such are the seemingly endless array of activities and leisure holiday options to choose from. The spectacular geography of the region creates a special atmosphere and unique setting that has made this town famous the world over.

The ‘Adventure Capital of the World’ is a reputation well earned. Queenstown is the home of adventure in New Zealand with everything that the adventure seeker could ever want – you can bungy jump, tandem skydive, parasail, go horse riding, canyoning, white water rafting or jet boating. Also nearby there is world-class skiing at a number of resorts including Coronet Peak and The Remarkables, as well as hiking, mountain biking, some world-class golf courses, caving, helicoptor flights, the list goes on and on.

The countryside around Queenstown is also home to Lord of The Rings, filmed amid the mountains, lakes, rivers and forests and is the gateway to Milford Sound, Fjordland.

Within the town itself are a myriad of dining and entertainment options, with a huge number of restaurants, bars and nightclubs, a casino, plus brilliant and varied shopping, all in a city centre small enough to walk around comfortably.

We have listed below some websites for some of the activites and options on offer so feel free to click on the links and see what you can do in this holiday playground:
