South of Mount Cook, past the distinctive tussock land of the Mackenzie Country, the vivid blue glacier-fed Lake Tekapo, massive hydro-dams and the township of Cromwell (known as “The Fruit Bowl of the South”), is the world-renowned tourist destination of Queenstown, a lake and alpine resort and New Zealand’s adventure capital. There are things to see and do in Queenstown in all seasons. Queenstown is part of the Central Otago wine region, where some of New Zealand’s best wines are made, especially Pinot Noir. The award-winning Gibbston Valley Winery just outside Queenstown is a must-see for a wine tasting, while in neighbouring Arrowtown you’ll feel you have stepped back in time to the 1860s when this historic goldmining town was booming.
For visitors with limited time at their disposal, or people keen to orientate themselves with the town’s layout and attractions, Queenstown Highlights offers the perfect answer.
Small groups spend three hours enjoying the benefits of our guides’ local knowledge for the best views, fascinating history, wine-tasting, adrenaline spectator spots and genuine insight into the region.
