Membership Registration: Commercial Rates Members

Thank you for your interest in becoming a Member of Destination Queenstown (DQ).

Please read the Definition of a DQ Member and DQ Membership Benefits for Commercial Rates members prior to completing this form.

When we receive your completed registration online, we will then contact Queenstown Lakes District Council to confirm your rates status.

Please select the membership that applies to you below.


Membership Category

Destination Queenstown provides membership to businesses trading in the Queenstown Lakes District Council (QLDC) territory.

We have three types of membership; Commercial Rate Contributing Members, Corporate Subscription Members and Individual Subscription Members. For Individual or Corporate Subscription Memberships, please access the Subscription Membership registration form.


Commercial Rate Contributing Member Registration

Commercial Rate Contributing Member is an individual, company or partnership who have paid or contributed to the current commercial rate by way of QLDC special order May 1992 or an individual, company or partnership who pays rent to a commercial ratepayer. These businesses are automatically entitled to become members of DQ and no membership fee is required.


Adventure Activity Regulations

The Adventure Activities Regulations require all operators who provide activities that are designed to deliberately expose participants to a risk of serious harm to undergo a safety audit by a recognised auditor and be registered. This aims to ensure operators can’t start up, or continue to operate, with inadequate safety systems.

As part of our membership application process, each new member must advise if they need to comply and if so, provide status of compliance.
