Bit of a climb but well worth it especially on a clear day and a added bonus is it’s free! I’d definitely do it again

Definitely worth the 1.5-2 hour round hike up to the view. Great view over Queenstown and a good activity for half a day on your holiday. Especially a good activity for those looking for cheap or free activities in Queenstown.

This track is steep in places and the round trip is probably about an hour and a half but it is definitely worth doing! The views from the dream bowl and then the summit which is another 10-15 mind further are amazing! If you have...More

Perfect. Bungee jumping to jet boat thrills and ski connections, hiking and nature walks are everywhere. Best time October to March being late Spring to late Summer. Enjoy. Cheers.

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
