Queenstown is known for its breath-taking scenery, vast range of experiences, cosmopolitan vibe and friendly local hosts.

With a reputation as the Southern Hemisphere’s premier four-season lake and alpine visitor destination, Queenstown offers your clients so much choice that no two days need be the same.

The best of Queenstown

  • Adventure capital – Skydiving, bungy jumping, canyon swinging, jetboating, ziplining and luging offer your clients an adrenaline overload.
  • Winter sports – With four different ski fields, there’s plenty of snow to go around in the winter. There’s also a vibrant après ski scene for your clients to enjoy.  
  • Cycling and mountain biking – Whether it's on the road or off the beaten track, take a guided or rided through a range of different terrains (or perhaps out to a local vineyard for a well-deserved glass of wine). The gravity assisted Queenstown Bike Park offers 30km of downhill bike trails for mountain bikers.
  • Lakes and rivers – Your clients can take their pick when it comes to the water, with fishing, wakeboarding, waterskiing, parasailing, rafting and kayaking all available. The TSS Earnslaw offers a scenic cruise on a historic steamboat
  • Golf experiences – With six immaculate courses only a short drive away, Queenstown is a perfect place for clients to stay when looking for a golf package.
  • Scenic flights – Fly over mountains, stunning fiords, glaciers and turquoise-blue lakes – all within an hour of Queenstown.

Trade tips

  • Book your clients’ accommodation early during ski season (June – October). Queenstown also gets busy during the Christmas and New Year period.
  • Autumn brings vibrant colours and settled weather to this region – perfect for photography and outdoor activities such as hiking and biking.
