Say namaste to start your day
Begin your morning with a gentle yoga practice and you’re on the right track, says Gary Livesey, general manager of Queenstown’s eclectic eatery and live music venue Yonder. Join a yoga class or retreat to refresh, unwind and regain your focus.
Yoga in Queenstown
Brunch and lunch like a Queenstowner
Follow your practice up with a healthy brunch shared with friends and you’re off to a good start. Nutritious food and drink eaten in one of the city’s many stylish cafes overlooking the lake is a favourite local activity. This is all the more picturesque in Autumn when a golden blanket of leaves carpets the ground and that fresh mountain air comes out to play.

Clear your mind in the great outdoors
Livesey recommends getting outside and enjoying some of that crisp air with a mountain bike ride or a hike on one of Queenstown’s many trails. When you’ve worn yourself out, why not visit a local art gallery or catch a movie at the boutique cinema in Arrowtown to skip the afternoon bustle?
Let day turn to night
Finally, take yourself into the evening with a delicious dinner and live music. Venues like Yonder are made for local Queenstowners to enjoy and experience. Fine food followed by live, local entertainment rounds off a busy day making the most of the region’s offerings. There’s something for all tastes with more than 150 bars, restaurants and cafes, fine local wine and a buzzing nightlife any evening of the week.
