A Bit of History
The vintage steamship TSS Earnslaw, built in 1912, has a special place in the hearts of the people of Queenstown. A cruise on the TSS Earnslaw showcases some of Lake Whakatipu’s most beautiful alpine scenery and allows plenty of time to explore the decks and bridge. Visit the engine room, view the collection of historical photos or join a sing-along with the onboard pianist. Disembark at Walter Peak High Country Farm and sit back on the lakeside terrace and savour the enticing aromas as the chef cooks a selection of food on the barbecue. After lunch or dinner, there is plenty of time to view the farm animals, join a walking tour of the farmyard and explore the extensive lakeside gardens.
A trip to Queenstown is not complete without seeing the area by air. Take a helicopter flight for a truly memorable experience. From Queenstown, Mount Cook, Twizel, Franz Josef and Fox Glacier, take a scenic flight to discover New Zealand’s National Parks, glaciers, mountains and lakes, often with a snow landing. The scenic flights from these iconic locations will take your breath away.
