Ma­jes­tic Queen­stown

With pure Alpine air, stun­ning views across snow-capped moun­tains and crys­tal clear lakes, Queen­stown, New Zealand, is the place where re­al­ity is more beau­ti­ful than imag­i­na­tion.

“We live in a won­der­ful world that is full of beauty, charm and ad­ven­ture. There is no end to the ad­ven­tures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open” (Jawa­har­lal Nehru)

New Zealand’s di­verse and dra­matic land­scape has drawn many vis­i­tors to the youngest coun­try on earth. New Zealand’s di­verse and dra­matic land­scape draws many vis­i­tors to its shores. From fiords to rain­forests, ocean beaches to vol­canic cones, the rel­a­tively un­touched land­scape is sim­ply breathtaking. There are plenty of rea­sons why New Zealand is rated one of the world’s pre­ferred des­ti­na­tions, such as the stun­ning scenery, wide open spa­ces, ex­treme ad­ven­ture, clean air, mouth-wa­ter­ing food and wine, to name just a few. I trav­elled to Queen­stown, a scenic town in South Is­land and dis­cov­ered one of the most beau­ti­ful places on earth. When my plane was about to touch down, I was busy tak­ing pic­tures of the beau­ti­ful scenery. I thought that the view would be bet­ter when you are on top, but boy was I wrong. As I stepped foot out­side the aero­plane, I was gasp­ing for air, as I was so mes­mer­ized by the stun­ning view. Sur­rounded by ma­jes­tic moun­tains and nestling on the shores of crys­tal clear Lake Wakatipu, Queen­stown’s stun­ning scenery is in­spir­ing. There is a wide range of ac­tiv­i­ties that will suit ev­ery­one. Try your hand at gold pan­ning or fish­ing with a rod. A wine trail will re­veal award-win­ning wines from the world’s most south­ern vine­yards. Queen­stown’s rep­u­ta­tion as the ad­ven­ture cap­i­tal of the world is well earned as it is home the world’s first com­mer­cial bungy-jumping site. I was here to make sure that I tried most of what Queens­land has to of­fer.
