    After a week of chasing birds around Fiordland and Stewart Island it was great to be able to confirm so many of my sightings here

    Awesome slopes for all levels of experience. Really well set up, with the base area for rental/toilets/storage/cafe etc. Good ski lifts, plenty of options. While there's car parks, the road up there is a bit dicey when its snowing/icy, my advice is to use the town Snow Center bus service, which is fantastic! Dont bother driving!

    Absolutely stunning place, not to far on a gravel road to a beautiful doc site with a lake that so clear we had to swim in it. Cool but not freezing. Inviting place to camp so we will be back - need a little bug spray.

    We visited at the end of May / 1st week of June 2021 and expected Queenstown to be very busy but, to OUR delight it was the opposite. It provided the opportunity for us to stroll through the mall and visit just about every shop. It was apparent that Covid 19 has adversely impacted the area and the "please-buy-from-me" look on many shop owner/manager faces left us feeling very guilty and sad.
    Some shops were still very expensive and tailored for tourists but, the majority of shops had excellent prices/deals/specials at the time and we certainly spent generously....The restaurants that we visited in the Mall continue to provide excellent service and food. Shop staff were still friendly and very helpful. So, overall, Queenstown Mall was very pleasant to visit and we sincerely wish all owners/managers/staff well.

    Biked Arrowtown to ‘Bungy Bridge’ with 7 year old and stunning views, great track. Did it the old fashioned way with push bikes, not e-bike, and was easy with ups and downs.

    What an awesome experience, my children. Made candles. Such a fun experience choosing their own colours and scents.
    The food was so good and my lemon honey drink with the added honey and ginger so so good.
    Staff today were all so helpful and friendly going above and beyond for us even talking about some gold panning tips. Thanku

    Surrounded by the autumn leaves this clear running water was a delight to be around- there was even a guy fully submerged with a snorkel looking for gold.

    This market was over the road from my Hotel. Got told by some people met on a tour that they wanted to go so meet them there. Is a nice market. With food, drinks, veges, plants, whitestone cheeses, books, soaps, sunnies etc . Is well laid out. Not junky 😀

    Great walk just off the Glenorchy road, well worth a walk to the picnic spot at the top of a very steep hill. Not suitable for pushchairs or people with any walking problems due to the uneven ground getting to the top, but the view is amazing. Good amount of parking of the highway.

    a lovely walk along the edge of Lake Wakatipu - although not to be attempted before sunrise as its pitch black! the waterfall is not much to write home about but the views across the lake are stunning. great place to watch the sunset.
