About Queenstown

Queenstown is an exhilarating, year round, alpine resort, perfect for adventurers and
leisure seekers alike. Nestled on the shores of Lake Wakatipu, overlooked by
the majestic Southern Alps, the town was named because "...it was fit for Queen Victoria".
Queenstown is today recognised internationally as New Zealand's premier visitor
destination.
 
The resort boasts a range of activities second to none, all within easy reach of the
compact town centre. The town centre is only one square kilometre in size and is easy
to navigate.
 
Queenstown offers relaxation at its best. There is gold in them there hills, and trout in the
streams, so try your hand with a gold pan or a fishing rod. Visit the Arrowtown Museum,
one of the best boutique museums in the country then afterwards explore the Wakatipu
Art Trail.
 
Queenstown's reputation as the adventure capital of the world is well earned, you can
choose to join in or watch the massive selection of breath-taking activities. Earth, water
or air, there is something to test and thrill all adventure seekers!
