What To Do
•Cruising – There is no better way to spend your evening than cruising around stunning Lake Wakatipu. Your eyes will be pampered by the eye candy of the town and the surrounding mountains. The superbly crafted Pacific Jemm (www.pacificjemm.com) is the only luxury boat available for charter in Queenstown. •Have a Cheesy Day – Being in New Zealand is not complete without trying some cheese. Located in Queenstown’s Valley of Vines, high in the southern mountains, Gibbston Valley Cheese specialises in sheep, cow and goat milk cheeses hand-crafted in the European styles of blue, brie, havarti, cheddar, gouda and camembert. The best way to do it is to have a lunch platter in the vineyard, indulge in the cheese and enjoy the view, then decide which cheese to take home.

This historic gold-mining town is located a 20-minute drive from Queenstown. The heart of its history is Buckingham Street, a procession of small-town heritage buildings that stretch into a tree-lined avenue of tiny miner’s cottages. The buildings in this lovely precinct house shops, galleries, bars and restaurants. It is a wonderful place to browse, enjoying the dining, the shopping and soaking up Arrowtown’s lively heritage.
