Top attractions in Queenstown
This fantastic resort town is one of the most desirable places to visit in New Zealand. Here, any traveler will be satisfied with the great outdoors, culture and a good night life!
Really one of the most beautiful lakes on the planet. On a sunny day, a trip here will not be forgotten.
This historic and scenic gorge was once home to New Zealand's richest gold-bearing river, the Shotover River. The river still exists, of course, but the gold is no more.
If you feel like a spot of gambling, then definitely head over to Skycity Casino and try your luck.
This fast flowing river is fantastic for thrill seeking tourists who can book on adventure tours.
This is a fantastic backpacking track for tourists and is accessible all year round.
These mountains are visible from Queenstown, and are worth heading to for walking or other adventure activities.
New Zealand's third largest lake, and at the feet of The Remarkables, the views here are breathtaking.
Another great backpacking track, popular with tourists - why not book onto a guided trip?
This national park is truly remarkable, and a great place to visit when in the region.
Another lake worth visiting, with plenty to see and do for tourists.
A difficult question to answer, as Queenstown has 5 different climate zones! To be safe however, the dry season is May to October, but you can visit all year-round.
It all depends on what you're planning - if you want to go backpacking, visit the mountains, and see the beautiful countryside, then one to two weeks will satisfy any happy campers.

What people are saying about Queenstown
The experienced is wonderstruck. The stunning beauty of Milford sound is extra ordinary . Should be on top of your lists when visiting Queenstown. The driver is funny but full of knowledge although he forgot to hand over my boarding pass and ticket for food on time. I was looking for him in the parking area to get my passes. I recommend the driver should asked if everyone got their boarding pass before we get off the bus .
Very beautiful. We were lucky there was no rain. I want to come again in Winter to see the snow. The guide was lovely. We stopped by some beautiful locations. I think the Mirror Lakes are just as beautiful as Milford Sound. The bus ride was a lil tough, but the seats were comfy with decent leg room and it was as bearable as a long bus ride could be.
Once in a lifetime experience. Pilot and staff where great friendly and helpful. I’m not the best traveller but felt secure and well looked after. Flight was bumpy over the alps but nothing more than anticipated.
The tour was great, the photo shots available are amazing. The food where we stopped for morning tea wasn't the best. The scenery was awesome and having the rain made the Milford Sounds magical
Great trip, coach driver had a lot of local knowledge & was very informative as was the boat skipper. I would highly recommend this trip. Stunning scenery.
