Queenstown is the aprés-ski, adventure capital of the Southern Hemisphere. Not only is this resort town surrounded by some of the most spectacular alpine scenery, it has a whole raft of adrenaline pumping, heart-stopping activities on offer.
Shoot the mountain gorge rapids by raft or jet boat, hurl yourself off bridges with a ungy cord round your ankles or ride by helicopter for outstanding views and sensational untracked powder. If the most action you want after a day on the slopes is lifting a cold beer or a crisp chardonnay, then Queenstown is the place for that too.
The town is known for its cafés, bars, restaurants and night-clubs – full of people from around the world who know how to party hard. And during the daytime, there’s great shopping, scenic trips on Lake Wakatipu, sight-seeing flights to stunning Milford Sound, international standard golf courses and much more to give your New Zealand holiday the ultimate mix of action and relaxation. Needless to say, all this resort living is more than matched by the outstanding range of accommodation available in Queenstown.
No matter what your style or credit card limit, you’ll find the ideal place to stay – all are within easy reach of the town’s two ski areas – Coronet Peak & The Remarkables and only a scenic 2 hour drive away from Wanaka, with its Treble Cone & Cardrona ski areas.
