Rugged mountains, majestic lakes, crystal clear air, and just so much to do. From bungy jumping to wine trails, jet boating to tramping, dining out to skiing, the tricky part is extending your stay to try and fit everything in. The area has captured hearts and imaginations since the first Maori came in search of Pounamu (greenstone) and the giant Moa bird. More recently, gold miners, adventurers, filmmakers, wine enthusiasts, Hollywood stars and US Presidents have been drawn to this magical region and its intense alpine energy.
Simply an Adventure
Adventure for fun, accessible adventure, adventure for relaxation. Queenstown is renowned for adventure. But there's much, much more. Queenstown is a sophisticated holiday resort set in the magnificent landscapes of the Southern Alps of New Zealand.
Born as an 1860's goldmining camp, 140 years later Queenstown has a compact and sophisticated downtown area tucked into a picturesque bay on the shores of Lake Wakatipu. Dwarfed by the surrounding mountains, there are amazing views from everywhere. There's also a permanent buzz in the downtown area where you'll find a lively café/bar scene and excellent shopping.
An Eventful Year
If having an unbeatable list of activities isn't enough, any one of the wide range of events on offer in this region could prove an irresistible attraction. The 45th parallel provides four distinct seasons and the locals don't let any go by without a fitting celebration or two.
Dusk to dawn, Queenstown rarely sleeps. Sophisticated wine bars, live jazz, top DJ's, long summer nights in a garden bar serving locally brewed beer or après ski in front of a roaring log fire, there's more than 160 licensed bars and cafés in downtown Queenstown and the socialite is spoilt for choice all year round, any night of the week.
