The adventure capital of the world leaves no stone unturned in its search for the next big thing.

Over the years, a spawn of creative locals have crafted a foodie and arts scene to rival New Zealand’s big cities, making this idyllic spot a charming tourist destination year-round. Whatever your fancy, you’ll never be bored in Queenstown.

Our tips for Queenstown

Our tips
  • Take a leap of faith. When considering things to do in Queenstown, thrill seekers should put bungee jumping at the top of their list. Queenstown has the top spot for this sport ever since AJ Hackett Bungy pioneered the first commercial bungee jump experience here in 1988.
  • Eat, drink and be merry. With vineyards as far as the eye can see and countless gourmet food joints, it’s only right to factor in some lunchtime excursions between your Queenstown tours.
  • Shop around. If you’re in need of a break from your Queenstown day tours, we recommend a bit of retail therapy. The local boutiques and arts shops in Queenstown are some of the best in New Zealand.

Good to know

Best time to visit
This is a year-round destination, with Queenstown sightseeing crowds reaching their peak in summer and winter. Visit Queenstown attractions in autumn (March to October) and spring (October to November) for less tourists and cheaper rates.
Getting around
Navigating scenic Queenstown can prove testing. Keep these top tips handy so you can get around with ease…
  • If, like most tourists, you’re staying close to the town centre, you can rely on foot power to see the sites.
  • Hire cars are a popular option here, though be sure to drive carefully. Queenstown’s high country roads, especially the ski-field roads often take visitors by surprise.
  • Several buses service the key local attractions, while tours found on isango! usually include transport on Queenstown day trips. The town’s local Connect-a-bus service also runs buses to and from town to the Queenstown Airport (ZQN).
Stay Safe
Queenstown is a relatively safe town. Keep these travel tips in tow so your trip can go off without a hitch…
  • The most common crime committed against tourists is car break-ins. Be sure to lock your vehicle and keep your valuables with you at all times.
  • When considering what to do in Queenstown with the little ones in tow, keep in mind that not all activities are child-friendly. Instead of flinging yourself off a bridge, perhaps opt for the many tamer alternatives that suit the whole gang.
  • In any emergency, dial 111.
