Quite a steep walk but wonderful views await those who stick with the walk until the very top. Wear some durable walking shoes. The route can be covered with ice and snow on the higher slopes.

This half-day walk is well and truly worth it! It is steep in places but once we reach the top you realise that the all the puffing on the walk up is worthwhile. Remember to bring a camera, and I recommend going on a day...More

It is a nice trail up to Queenstown Hill, depending on the weather it can be a bit muddy or icy. But the view, when you reach the top is amazing.

A good walk up to the top. The views at the top are great, you can see over Queenstown. There's a cool sculpture at the top.

Good view for what it is. Do if you have a lot of time in Queenstown. If not, do Ben Lomond instead.

Unfortunately, the day we arrived in Queenstown the after effects of a cyclone were hitting the town so it wasn't the best day for the beautiful views we had been hoping for. However, we braved the rain and enjoyed our walk to the top. It...More

So yes this is more than a hill. It is steeper than the price of pretty much everything in Queenstown. However I saw people of all ages and fitness levels complete it in a number of different ways. Don't let it beat you as the...More

The trail is not that long, but somewhat steep. So get good walking or trekking shoes just in case. There is not many signs but keep going up and evetually you reach the top. The view of the city with the lake at the top...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

Hello! It was pretty steep and I can imagine parts of the track would be slippery if it has been raining. I would suggest hiking boots if possible, my sneakers did ok though. Also take water, as it is a bit of a walk to the... More
