Home of the adventure bucket list
Take time to enjoy Queenstown.
Queenstown sits on the shore of crystal clear Lake Wakatipu among dramatic alpine ranges; it’s rumored that gold prospectors - captivated by the majestic beauty of the surrounding mountains and rivers - gave this now cosmopolitan town its name. With a smorgasbord of outdoor activities, Queenstown is the home of the ultimate adventure bucket list. There’s skiing in the winter, and activities such as bungy jumping, skydiving, canyon swinging, jet boating, horse trekking and river rafting all year
round. It has also become a renowned cycling destination, providing everything from easy scenic tracks to backcountry trails; road rides to heli-biking and the Southern Hemisphere’s only gondola accessed downhill mountain biking. With a buzzing atmosphere and stunning scenery, you’ll find there’s no other place in the world quite like Queenstown. • Ride the Skyline Gondola for iconic views across Queenstown
and Lake Wakatipu. • Visit Glenorchy, set amongst ancient beech forests and on the
doorstep of the Mount Aspiring National Park, it’s a great place to enjoy horse riding, kayaking, walking and skydiving. • Take a scenic flight for a bird’s eye view of the dramatic natural landscapes. • Draw inspiration from the amazing alpine surroundings as you play a round of golf on one of Queenstown’s world-renowned courses. For something a little different, check out the 18-object frisbee golf course at the Queenstown Gardens. • Marvel at the spectacular scenery on a day trip from Queenstown to Milford Sound. There’s no shortage of things happening around the region with plenty of exciting events throughout the year.
Challenge yourself to push your own limits. You’ll find every type of adventure here, from mild to wild.
• If you’re visiting during the winter season, hit the slopes to go skiing or snowboarding or try snowshoeing. • Defy gravity and step out of your comfort zone with an adrenaline-pumping activity like bungy jumping, canyon swinging, canyoning or ziplining.
• Hurtle through the air attached to a skydive instructor or soar
like a bird as you hang glide or paraglide. • Get on a bike. Take an exhilarating heli-biking tour, ride with the locals on downhill tracks, check out the cross country biking trails or pedal around the lakefront. Enjoy clear mountain air and stunning vistas on one of the many walking trails within easy reach of Queenstown.
