We've rounded up the top ten locations that capture all angles of Queenstown, from above, below, on the water and in nature.
Lake Wakatipu was named from the original Māori word Whakatipu wai-māori. Legend says that the lake bed was formed when a giant demon, Matau was burned while sleeping.
Lake Wakatipu is up to 379 meters deep in some places, making the lake bed below sea level at its deepest point. The colour of the lake, nicknamed ‘Wakatipu Blue’ is a famous deep blue, and can shift colour due to glacial waters of the Dart and Rees rivers, feeding the lake at its northern tip. More recently in 2014, the lake changed to a mesmerizing turquoise colour due to a large landslip in the Dart River releasing glacial silt into the water.
