Cafes & Restaurants
The food scene in Queenstown is one of the best on the South Island. Cosy Italian restaurants sit around the corner from world-famous burger joints, and classic fish and chip shops neighbour trendy asian-fusion eateries. Whatever you’re craving today rest assured Queenstown can deliver.
You are truly spoilt for choice when it comes to finding a thrill in Queenstown. Head up the Skyline Gondola for unrivalled views of the area, or perhaps try your hand at luging (it’s like go karting only with no engines and going downhill). Of course, New Zealand is the home of bungee, so your trip wouldn’t be complete without jumping off a bridge or a ledge. And of course, the stunning Milford Sound is just a coach ride away. Your friendly front desk team can help you with bookings for any activities you’d like to do, just ask.
Hiking & Walking
Queenstown is definitely not a place to hide indoors, with loads of epic hikes and walking trails right on your doorstep it’s time to get out and about. A number of short scenic walks start right from Queenstown’s town centre whilst the dramatically beautiful Fiordland and Mount Aspiring national parks, home to the Routeburn and Greenstone tracks, are within easy reach for a day trip or the full multi-day hiking expedition.
