Here, adventure and tranquillity are interwoven, inviting you to explore at your own pace. 

 Featuring world class food, drink and experiences nestled in dramatic mountainous landscapes, there is no wonder Queenstown is a favourite destination, year-round. In summer, enjoy cool sunny days and outdoor activities like day hikes and bungee jumping. If winter snow is more your atmosphere, Queenstown is home to 4 world-class ski fields with Après-ski activities like Onsen Hot Pools which are situated with a picture frame-like view of the mountain-scapes.

Dine at contemporary venues like The Sherwood or SODA. With a range of options from quality casual breakfast spots to upmarket evening affairs.
