Queenstown Popular Tourism Businesses

Queenstown the 'Adventure Capital of New Zealand', is one of the most wild and iconic of the top tourist destinations in the country. Located in the south-western, unspoilt, alpine region of of the South Island, Queenstown is built around a pristine inlet on the sparkling Lake Wakatipu and is nestled in amongst towering rugged mountains including The Remarkables, Cecil Peak, Walter Peak, Ben Lomond and Queenstown Hill. The region around Queenstown is characterised by jagged mountain ranges, deep canyons, wild cascading rivers, crystal-clear lakes, rain forest, tussock grassland and fresh mountain air – in short this region one of nature’s finest marvels. Queenstown is 483km from Christchurch – a 5 and a half hour drive away or 50 minute flight. more

Queenstown hosts a truly impressive list of adventure activities to enjoy – being a leading pioneer in all things outdoor + adventure it was here jet-boating and bungy jumping were first commercialised. Queenstown prides itself in multitudes of activities in every category for every traveller – no matter whether you are seeking the heart-pumping adventure, or the eye-popping scenic tour, or the thrilling slope to ski or a lively nightlife – all are found here.

Seeking the adrenaline-pumping, hair-raising, heart-thumping adventure of a lifetime? Queenstown boasts an incredible slew of options including: white-water rafting, jet-boating, bungy jumping, paragliding, mountain biking, rock climbing, canyoning, as well as New Zealand’s largest swing strung across a mountain canyon and – true to Queenstown’s spirit of fun and adventure – you choose how you would like to plummet down at 120km/hr (forwards, backwards, upside down or many other positions).

Want a little more quiet and relaxation in your Queenstown experience? No problem! Create your selection from the raft of quieter activities on offer including – scenic helicopter tours, cross country biking, trout and salmon fishing, vintage steamboat cruising, wine-tasting in some of the world’s southernmost wineries, guided hiking or Segway touring. Alternatively, take a day out golfing on one of Queenstown’s splendid golf courses at the very foot of great imposing mountain ranges – or else wonder off on your own on an adventurous hike in New Zealand’s alpine wilderness or just explore this region by car where every sight around every bend is a ready-made postcard.

Go into the town and you will find a lively night-life, romantic cafes and restaurants, scenic water front, fantastic shopping as well as spa treatments and gourmet dining. Take the gondola up the mountain slope and enjoy breath-taking views of Queenstown as you relax wining and dining over the town. Walk along the waterfront and check out Queenstown’s underwater observatory and watch the fish and eels swimming alongside diving ducks.

Come in the winter and find the town transformed into a world class ski resort. Breathe deeply the fresh mountain air as you ski the slopes of Queenstown’s dramatic mountain slopes. Alternatively, enjoy other winter sports on offer like – ice skating, ice climbing and snow-shoeing. Queenstown celebrates the snow season with gusto in a busy, lively winter festival, The Queenstown Winter Festival.

Centrally located, Queenstown is also a great base to explore the wider region. Take a day trip and chill at Arrowtown – a quaint gold-rush era resort town where the autumn colours are truly something to behold, or drive to Wanaka – another of the South Island’s great alpine resorts known for its superb ski fields and outdoor activities. Alternatively book an excursion to the world famous Milford or Doubtful Sounds in the World Heritage listed Fiordland National Park – one of New Zealand’s most spectacular landscapes and certainly one if it’s finest jewels.

Accommodation is plentiful in Queenstown with five-star hotels, motels, luxury and budget apartments, homely bed and breakfasts, luxury lodges, quaint retreat, holiday homes, cabins and camping grounds. During festival and high seasons, budget accommodation can fill up quickly.
