Queenstown

Queenstown

Queenstown is a lake and alpine resort with rugged mountains, majestic lakes and crystal clear air and plenty to do. From bungy jumping to wine trails, jet boating to trekking, dining out to skiing - the hard part is ftting everything in.

 Queenstown is easily accessible from Wanaka and many people stay in Wanaka and do day trips over the hill. The area has captured the hearts and imaginations since the frst Maori came in search of pounamu (greenstone) and the giant Moa bird. More recently gold miners, adventurers, flm makers and even Hollywood stars have all been drawn by Queenstown’s intense alpine energy and stunning scenery. Dwarfed by the surrounding mountains, there are amazing views from wherever you are.

Queenstown is a vibrant winter playground for ski and snowboard enthusiasts from throughout the world. It’s just as active during the rest of the year with trekking, boating on the lake and a host of adrenaline-pumping thrills the area is so famous for. Those after a more relaxing time can indulge in the magnifcent scenery and wealth of award-winning vineyards located in Gibbston Valley, explore the area on an arts trail or enjoy a game of golf on one of the area’s world-class courses.

Nearby, Arrowtown is a combination of striking seasonal changes, historic buildings and quiet charm while Glenorchy is bordered by the World Heritage Area and surrounded by mountains, glacier-fed rivers and beech forest.

If you want to stay in Queenstown then there is a wide range of accommodation options from holiday parks, backpackers, motels, hotels, hosted bed and breakfasts, holiday homes to secluded boutique lodges.

Connectabus runs a daily service to Wanaka so you can come on over and enjoy some of the great activities that Lake Wanaka has to offer:
