the Queenstown Wine Trail and discover award-winning wines from the World's most
southern vineyards. Return to town and sample the delights on offer in the many
shops, cafes and restaurants. As night falls, get ready to experience the resort's
buzzing nightlife. |
Queenstown's reputation as the adventure capital of the
world is well earned, you can choose to join in or watch the massive selection
of safe, breath-taking activities. Earth, water or air, there is something to
test and thrill all adventure seekers.
Bungy Jump from the world's first
commercial bungy site, swoop and soar in your own controllable "rocket",
whitewater raft or surf, jet boat down canyons, tandem hanglide or parapente...it
simply doesn't stop! Long walks, four wheel drive treks, or lunch on a majestic
steamboat, you choose, it's your holiday.
Take a short drive back in time
to the historic goldmining settlement of Arrowtown, or drive the shores of Lake
Wakatipu to discover the beautiful hamlet of Glenorchy, the gateway to the Paradise
Valley and the famous Routeburn walking track.
Over the hill but not very
far from Queenstown you will find the peace and tranquility of the small town
of Wanaka with its crystal clear lake and dramatic mountain landscape.
