About Queenstown

Queenstown is the most popular ski holiday destination in New Zealand, and on the doorstep of some incredible ski and snowboard resorts.
A short drive or shuttle bus ride will take you to one of four nearby resorts - namely Coronet Peak, the Remarkables, Cardrona or Treble Cone. Each mountain offers something different and with two different lift tickets to choose from (or get both), the choice is yours each day!
Queenstown itself is vibrant town on the shores of Lake Wakatipu, surrounded by stunning snowcapped mountains. Well known for the adventure activities on offer such as Bungee Jumping, Sky Diving and Jet Boating, Queenstown is now also famous for its range of excellent dining options, nightlife and shopping.
Accommodation in Queenstown is available for all budgets, from cheap backpacker hostels to family friendly self contained apartments and even several five star hotels!
