Queenstown, New Zealand

Whether it’s adventure you crave or a serene waterside break, Queenstown has it all. Set against the deep-blue backdrop of Lake Wakatipu and the drama of The Remarkables with their snow-dusted, ski-worthy peaks, it exudes a peaceful exterior. But beneath that lies a thrill-seeking heart. Adrenaline junkies will fit right in here – whether they want to jump off a bridge in the place the bungee was born, skydive above some of the most beautiful landscapes on the planet or partake in the innovative Shotover Canyon Swing. Finish your days in one of the many cosmopolitan restaurants, at a vineyard, or with a round of golf. Whatever you want from your Queenstown holiday, our Travel Experts can make it happen. And one thing’s for sure: you’ll never be bored here.
