About Queenstown

Queenstown is an exhilarating, year round, alpine resort, perfect for adventurers and leisure seekers alike. Nestled on the shores of Lake Wakatipu, overlooked by the majestic Southern Alps, the town was named because "...it was fit for Queen Victoria." Queenstown is today recognised internationally as New Zealand's premier visitor destination.

The resort boasts a range of activities second to none, all within easy reach of the compact town centre. The town centre is only one square kilometre in size and within easy walking distance of most major commercial accommodation.

Queenstown offers relaxation at its best. There is gold in them there hills, and trout in the streams, so try your hand with a gold pan or a fishing rod. Visit the Arrowtown Museum, one of the best boutique museums in the country then afterwards explore the Wakatipu Art Trail.

Queenstown's reputation as the adventure capital of the world is well earned, you can choose to join in or watch the massive selection of breath-taking activities. Earth, water or air, there is something to test and thrill all adventure seekers!
