Summer fun for everyone in Queenstown

Surrounded by majestic mountains and nestled on the shores of crystal clear Lake Wakatipu, Queenstown is New Zealand's premier holiday destination.

You can expect long leisurely days for your summer holiday in Queenstown. Daytime temperatures are usually between 20 and 30 degrees C.

The sun rises early and in mid summer dusk is about 10pm, perfect for getting outdoors and enjoying the many amazing experiences on offer, whether you're on your own, with friends or have the whole family to satisfy.

Adventure may be your thing (and you might surprise yourself as many others have) or venture onto our hiking and biking trails for all levels. A bit of golf may tempt you, or perhaps the wineries, cafes bars and resturants.

Many art galleries, often at the artist's residence, are open to browse or explore our rich heritage with a visit to the district museum in historic Arrowtown.

To cap it off there are a myriad of events, many free,  to entertain and inspire throughtout summer.

Most of all, breath in our fresh mountain air, in a magical alpine setting and just relax and have fun!
