Pure inspiration (Destination Queenstown)
Australasia’s only lake and alpine year-round holiday destination, Queenstown is a spectacular, inspiration and life enhancing destination. You’ll never be short of things to do in Queenstown, whether you’re a family, a couple, a group of friends, or just on your own.
Blessed with lakes and mountains, the town is famous for its activity, well living up to its Adventure Capital of the World moniker. Skydiving, bungy jumping, canyon swinging, rafting, paragliding, jet boating, skiing, heli skiing, snowboarding, snow shoeing, mountain biking, hiking… the choices are endless.
But it’s not all about adrenalin, Queenstown’s spectacular scenery, superb wines and vibrant town centre can be enjoyed at any pace during every season.
Spring is the epitome of freshness, and once the winter snows disappear, the vibrant colours, sense of renewal, and warmer temperatures will tempt you out of doors.
Summer brings emerald-green valleys, endless daylight alfresco dining and plenty of lake and mountain activities along with family-friendly festivals and events.
Autumn is the time for indulgence and togetherness, the months when Queenstown chills out against a backdrop of stunning autumnal colours.
By winter, excitement levels rise as Queenstown serves up snow sports and apres ski in no uncertain terms, from the moment the first snowflakes ice the mountain-tops.
Whether you’re on a budget, or able to spend a little more, Queenstown’s Kiwi hospitality can help you discover yourself, your family and more.
