Queenstown, New Zealand is an exciting and fun-filled family holiday destination with lots of things to do with kids.

Explore the home of adventure with the family and discover many new experiences together. There are many activities in Queenstown that are suitable for children and most companies offer kids’ prices or even ‘kids go free’ promotions at certain times of the year. 

Each of the four seasons offers family travellers unique experiences. In spring you can explore the fresh blooms, visit farms and meet newborn lambs and calves and even feed gigantic Highland cattle.

Summer brings some watery fun. Try jet boating (for those tall enough), paddleboarding or kayaking in a quiet cove, or go beneath the water’s surface and see the trout and salmon that gather at the Queenstown Pier for regular feeds.

When the trees start to turn in autumn there’s still a lot for families. Get off the beaten track with an off road adventure or land tour, or hike bikes and explore our beautiful wide open trails, stopping to take in the views along the way. Check out the parade at the annual Akarua Arrowtown Autumn Festival, and choose a restaurant with a kids' menu to help feed the tribe.

Then when the snow starts to fall in winter the real fun starts. If your family is new to snowsports, don’t be afraid to start them young! There’s heaps of options for gear hire, kids lift passes and lessons that cater for practically every age. One of the most rewarding things as a parent is to see your kids take to something at a young age, you never know what your three-year-old is capable of! Learner slopes are very gentle and experienced instructors know just how to teach small kids.

For downtime or rainy days there’s plenty of indoor fun including cinema, swimming pools, go karting, indoor skydiving and trampolines to keep everyone occupied and happy.
