The first time I walked the Qtown hill track we stopped at the Basket of Dreams, this time we walked to the summit and it was so worth it, the 360 degree views were astounding! Love the run back down

Enjoyed this walk on a cool day. I agree with other reviewers to turn right at the start of the loop as this is a more gradual climb and a better formed track. The walk took us exactly 1hr00 return and we didn’t go up...More

We attempted this in winter and so the summit track was icy, however the walk was definetly worth it as the view was spectacular..!

This was a moderately challenging climb because of the height. The views of part of Queenstown and the lake were excellent and made it worthwhile. You can see the nearby gondola as well. The foliage was a mix of native and invasive, which they explain...More

We went fro a general stroll around the Queenstown streets and pushed ourselves to walk up the ‘Queenstown Hill’. Once there - and once we had our breath back - we were able to take in the panoramic views of the surrounding area. Very nice...More

It's the perfect place for you and your boyfriend Kim. We have visited NZ in January and February on 3 occasions. Can be wet anytime of year though and thus summer had been very hot though usually about mid 20s
