  • QUEENSTOWN, NEW ZEALAND CITY GUIDE

GETTING AROUND QUEENSTOWN

Queenstown may be in one of the most scenic spots in the world, and it is known as the adventure capital of New Zealand. This small town is easily walkable and a day or two post-tour is most enjoyable.

THINGS TO DO IN QUEENSTOWN

Map of points of interest in Queenstown

1. QUEENSTOWN VISITOR CENTRE

Located on Shotover Street, find maps, restaurant suggestions, and operator recommendations for bungy jumping, rafting, paragliding, canyoning, mountain biking, jetboating, and more.

2. SKYLINE GONDOLA

Take the gondola to the summit of the hill overlooking the town (you can walk it, too). Opt to take the three-wheeled “luge” back down.

3. MILFORD SOUND

One of New Zealand’s most famous destinations for its breathtaking fjord landscape. The Milford Track is perhaps the country’s best-known hike.

4. DOUBTFUL SOUND

Less crowded, larger, equally beautiful, and more remote than Milford Sound, this peaceful area is well worth a visit. Plan time for some hiking.

5. TE ANAU GLOWWORM CAVE

Evening tours will take you through the darkness where hundreds of glowworms illuminate the
underground world.

QUEENSTOWN WINE TRAIL

Rent a car or bike and do a self-guided tour yourself, jump on a small-group tour, or enjoy a private tour. Inquire at the Visitor Centre.

For hotel recommendations, please see the Pre- & Post-Tour section of your Trip Planner.
