Top attractions in Queenstown
This fantastic resort town is one of the most desirable places to visit in New Zealand. Here, any traveler will be satisfied with the great outdoors, culture and a good night life!
Really one of the most beautiful lakes on the planet. On a sunny day, a trip here will not be forgotten.
This historic and scenic gorge was once home to New Zealand's richest gold-bearing river, the Shotover River. The river still exists, of course, but the gold is no more.
If you feel like a spot of gambling, then definitely head over to Skycity Casino and try your luck.
This fast flowing river is fantastic for thrill seeking tourists who can book on adventure tours.
This is a fantastic backpacking track for tourists and is accessible all year round.
These mountains are visible from Queenstown, and are worth heading to for walking or other adventure activities.
New Zealand's third largest lake, and at the feet of The Remarkables, the views here are breathtaking.
Another great backpacking track, popular with tourists - why not book onto a guided trip?
This national park is truly remarkable, and a great place to visit when in the region.
Another lake worth visiting, with plenty to see and do for tourists.
A difficult question to answer, as Queenstown has 5 different climate zones! To be safe however, the dry season is May to October, but you can visit all year-round.
It all depends on what you're planning - if you want to go backpacking, visit the mountains, and see the beautiful countryside, then one to two weeks will satisfy any happy campers.

What people are saying about Queenstown
Bucket list trip . Was looking forward to this and it did not disappoint. Scenery was bombarding us at every turn and the driver stopped often for photos and a blurb about the area.. A very long trip overall but vey much worth every penny.Recommended
Great food, service, and views highly recommend this as part of the holiday itenirary.
Disappointed in food choice on boat (2 sandwich options) and junk food. Buffet was outrageously priced. It would have been nice to have the choice to purchase a box lunch since we were on the excursion for 12 hrs. Luckily we brought our own snacks. Lots of comfort/sightseeing stops.
Our lunch meet was absolutely fantastic from go to whoa. My daughter in law flew in from Christchurch with her two daughters aged 5 and 3 and I travelled from Alexandra. I was delighted with everything from the bottom of the hill to the top, then back down again. The staff, very friendly and helpful with the toddlers. The food selection was fantastic and plentiful for all ages. The luncheon staff, all smiles and most helpful. I can’t fault our lunch date which I am proud of you all as it was my turn to pick the venue. A BIG thank you to all the staff at Skyline.
There was a disconnection between the booking staff and the tour guide. The lunch was previously booked. But the tour guide was not informed.
