Tucked into a picturesque bay on the shores of Lake Wakatipu on New Zealand’s South Island, Queenstown is known as ‘The Adventure Capital of the World’.
Queenstown is surrounded by rugged mountains, crystal clear air and stunning lakes, most notably Lake Wakatipu that imparts an aura of serenity on the town and provides a stunning outlook for many bars and restaurants.
Adventures the region is most renowned for include bungy jumping with the world’s original bungy jumping company, tandem skydiving, white water rafting and jet boating.
In the downtown area of Queenstown you’ll find a lively cafe and bar scene and fantastic shopping. There are more than 160 licensed bars and cafes including wine bars, live jazz bars and garden bars selling locally brewed beer.
Queenstown also boasts a busy events calendar with four distinct seasons giving locals every excuse they need to celebrate.
The tricky part of a visit to Queenstown is trying to fit everything into one escape.
