If you have never visited the quintessentially beautiful town of Queenstown you might just be missing-out on one of New Zealand’s best-kept secrets!
A small town with a big city vibe, Queenstown is jam-packed full of action, and whether you are looking for a thrill seeking, water rafting, bungee jumping adventure holiday, or a more relaxed sightseeing, wine tasting, gourmet dining type of journey, Queenstown has got it all.
Nestling around the turquoise blue Lake Wakatipu, Queenstown is a beautiful resort town complete with soaring mountains aptly named The Remarkables, spectacular scenery, atmospheric bars and restaurants, and the friendly locals that give New Zealand its great charm.
With weather patterns similar to those found in the Northern Hemisphere, Queenstown enjoys warm summers (December to March), where one can hike, sunbathe on the banks of the Lake, and dine alfresco, and snow-covered winters (June – August), where skiers and snowboarders from across the globe flock to enjoy the pristine slopes.
Queenstown is a great base for those heading to Milford Sounds, and if you dream of sailing some of the most beautiful Fjords in the world, you will certainly not be disappointed at what Te Anau has to offer.
Wine aficionados will appreciate the fine wines and dining available at Gibbston Valley, a mere 10 minute drive from Queenstown, and if you enjoy a Pinot Noir – you are in for a treat as Gibbston have gold medals all over the place!
Come rain or shine, Queenstown has something to offer everyone, so why not head on over and enjoy Kiwi hospitality at its best!
