The Queenstown area has some of New Zealand's most spectacular scenery and natural features. There are several walks in and around Queenstown giving you the opportunity to explore and enjoy the outstanding scenery at the same time. The Queenstown Hill Time Walk is a 500 metre climb through pine forest to the summit of Te Tapu-nui (mountain of intense sacredness). You'll be rewarded with sweeping views of the surrounding land.
