The Area: Queenstown
Queenstown has established itself as one of the great adrenaline hot spots of the world, with bungee jumping, jet boating and white water rafting just some of the many draw cards for travellers seeking thrills and spills. Alongside this is Queenstown’s less adventurous side, catering for those who prefer not to tie themselves to a rope and jump off a bridge. A cosmopolitan food, wine and art scene will be more than enough temptation to keep two feet on the ground. The crowds that gather here nightly are proof that Queenstown’s best kept secret has gotten out.
For a well-rounded trip to Queenstown slow down the pace and take in spectacularly dramatic views of sky-scraping mountains and glimmering lakes and sounds. Get a birds eye view by taking to the air in a giant hot air balloon, or be immersed in the surrounds from the comfort and privacy of a Japanese-style hot spring. Groupies not sold on mountain biking can still take to two wheels with a bike tour of the vineyard and cellar doors of the Gibbston Valley. Get a glimpse of native wildlife on Glenorchy Island and try to fit in a quick trip across the lake to the secluded beaches of untouched Pig Island and Pigeon Island. Whatever the desired holiday pace, Queenstown has something for everyone.
