Don't leave yourself short of time for this up-hill trek and take care coming down. Sensible shoes are a must and allow time for photos at the top -- the view is fantastic! Oh, take plenty of water with you - no toilets though unless...More

This is a difficult hike, mainly because nearly all of it is steep, but the destination is well worth the effort: Basket of Dreams, frozen pond (kids played ice hockey), and stunning views. There are also a few interesting things to see along the way....More

No visit to Queenstown would be complete without a visit to the top of hill for an amazing view of the Town and the lake.

Easy hike for all ages and fitness levels for a really beautiful view of Lake Wakatipu. It only took about 2 hours round-trip, and that was with stopping to take pictures.

So much to do with so much choice. Just go with the flow in this town. Skyline a must, Ben Lomond track if you can but make sure you are prepared. Ferberger is worth the wait and Milford sounds is a must.

Stunning - nature at its finest. It's a beautiful area and the locals (most of whom are definitely not locals) are very friendly.

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
