Summer in Queenstown

Surrounded by majestic mountains and nestled on the shores of crystal clear Lake Wakatipu, Queenstown is NZ's premier four season lake and alpine resort.

Queenstown's enviable alpine climate and long leisurely summer days are ideal for adventurous holidays and fantastic outdoor living.

Early mornings and long days provide plenty of time for play. But it's not all about testing gravity with adrenaline fueld activities. Queenstown happily lends itself to everyone's idea of fun.

Why not take some time out and enjoy some of the many beaches located around the shores of Lake Wakatipu in Queenstown.

If you want to be where all the action is head to the main beach in Queenstown Bay. Here you'll be captivated by many of the wonderful activities that Queenstown has on offer.

If a little peace and quiet mixed with some sun and a good book is what you are after then maybe try Sunshine Bay (just 5mins drive along the Glenorchy road from Queenstown).

A little further out of town is Wilson's Bay, sheltered from the southerly breeze, Wilson's Bay is a popular spot for family picnics and waterskiing. For an absoulte gem of a location coupled with a short walk, head out to sample the beauty at Bob's Cove.
