Lazy Meal

Find one of Queenstown's many cafes or casual restaurants and enjoy a lazy, cosy brunch or lunch beside a roaring fire, mulled wine in hand and plan for the next day's activities. Why not read about the history of winemaking in the region?


Hot Pools

Head to the hot tub in your hotel, whether it's indoors or surrounded by gardens with the rain pattering around you, or take a trip to a dedicated hot pool and soak away an afternoon.


Degustation Delights

Sample signature dishes at one of Queenstown's top restaurants with a degustation dinner and experience culinary artistry, paired with Central Otago wines of course.

Milford Sound on a Rainy Day

Milford Adventure

Take a drive, or book a tour to Milford Sound, and see why it’s considered the eighth wonder of the world. The Sounds are incredible even in the rain, which will fuel the many waterfalls that feed fresh water into the waterways. If you're driving yourselves do check if the road is open before you depart, and carry chains in winter in case of snow. Even better, join a coach trip and allow all of your companions to soak up the views on the spectacular drive.
