Established around a channel named Queenstown Bay on Lake Wakatipu (a long Z-shaped lake moulded by glacial formation) has magnificent views of the Remarkables, Cecil Peak and Walter Peak mountain tops that encircle the city. And being the second biggest town in Otago makes for a great reason to hire a car to help you see and do as many attractions you can in this winter wonderland.
Skiing, jet boating, white-water rafting, bungee jumping, mountain biking, skateboarding, tramping and fly fishing are only a portion of the amazing heart pumping activities available to you in this winter oasis and not only attractions, but Queenstown is the New Zealand centre for snow sports and Winter Festival events (Largest winter party to be held in the southern Hemisphere), thus coaxing people from all over the world to participate in its’ action packed culture.
With Queenstown Airport 10km away from town and scheduled flights to Auckland, Christchurch and Sydney all year round while flights to Wellington, Melbourne and Brisbane are offered seasonally, this town has it all…just check out this awesome guide of the best things to do while exploring and staying here.
