Beautiul views from Queenstown Hill. Either walk or take the ride up and enjoy the wonderful views. It can get pretty cold up there so bring a jacket. Also recommend going on a clear day.

This activity deserves a higher ranking! Though the climb is steep, you'd be rewarded with lots of beautiful pictures at the top especially if the weather is good. Halfway through the climb you would come to a split where you can choose to go up...More

A hike up from town for views particularly good in late afternoons for sunset and vista of lake and mountains

We called into Queenstown on our way past to do this short hike. It's got a fair amount of elevation (especially as we started down in town, rather than at the top car park at the trail head). Took around an hour, although we only...More

Free activity, however some other reviews state medium in intensity I will differ and say some parts are hard-straight upward climb at some parts so be prepared. We walked to and from town before and did not start at Belfast street-park here if you don’t...More

This is one of the best lookouts in Queenstown. It comes for free. You just have to work for it...I mean work a little hard. You can park your car along Belfast Terrace then walk all the way up. Along the way, the trail will...More

A moderate hike with a 360 degree view to make it totally worthwhile. I've never seen anything quite like it, Queenstown is a truly special place and Queenstown Hill provides the best views of it!

If you’re in Queenstown, you must do this! You absolutely MUST do this! It’s an hour to the summit, and probably a lot faster coming down. And the 360-degree views from up there... takes your breath away! You’d be convinced that New Zealand is the...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
