Queenstown is an incredible natural playground providing a range of sights to see and things to do for all styles of travel.

Each of the seasons has its own special vibe in Queenstown, and most activities can be accessed all year round. World-renowned for its adventure, Queenstown is home to a huge choice of adrenaline activities including jet boatingbungy jumping, white water raftingskydiving and even indoor thrills – all guaranteed to get your blood pumping! 

In the cooler months Queenstown transforms into a world-class winter resort, with four ski areas and a range of activities, barsrestaurants and ways to relax and unwind.

You can even combine a round of golf one morning with a tour of some of our Gibbston wineries to discover why Central Otago Pinot Noir is famous on the world stage.

If you’re looking for a slightly slower pace there’s plenty of recreational activities to be found, including hiking and biking trails to explore, guided tours, boat cruisesscenic flights or spa and wellness options to help you relax and unwind.
