Leave the city behind and discover the natural environment that this region is so famous for with a scenic cruise aboard a heritage steam vessel. The TSS Earnslaw departs Queenstown and transports you across the pristine waters of Lake Wakatipu, flanked by majestic tree-lined peaks.

As the only coal-fired passenger-carrying ship left in the Southern Hemisphere, the TSS Earnslaw is packed with history and legacy. Leaving the shores of Queenstown, head south for the remote corners of beautiful Lake Wakatipu. Sit back, relax, and admire the dramatic landscapes of snow-capped peaks, verdant hillsides, and rugged cliffs.

Having been built over 100 years ago, and launched in the same year as the Titanic, the vessel you're riding is a valuable piece of history. Visit the on-board museum for an insight into its past and to see the working engines in action in the steam room.

As you're serenaded by the ship's pianist feel yourself transported back in time on a delightful cruise across Queenstown's famous lake.

Important information
While the TSS Earnslaw is away on annual maintenance, a replacement vessel will substitute at a reduced cost. (01 June - 05 July 2020) Dates are subject to change.
