Known as the adventure capital of the world - and with good reason - Queenstown is the quintessential lakefront town with something for everyone. Thrill seekers will never be bored with a myriad of options from which to choose: sky-diving, bungee jumping, cliff swinging, jet boating, paragliding, hang-gliding, the list goes on. Visitors with a tamer view of life can take wine tasting tours, go horseback riding, sail on Lake Wakatipu in the 100-year-old steam boat, or ride the famous gondola up the mountain (with a luge ride option) for spectacular views. After dark, hit the nightlife scene and join pub crawls, sip cocktails in the ice bars, or dance the night away at clubs. For a small town with a big city feel, Queenstown is your destination - and many stay longer than they originally intended.

Queenstown - The adventure capital of the world! The birthplace of bungy jumping and the home to jet boating, white water rafting, skiing, mountain biking and every other adventure activity you can think of. Not the adventurous type - there are walks, wineries, stunning scenery, shopping, great restaurants, hip bars and some of the best scenery going.

Queenstown is a must visit place in South Island of New Zealand. It is the tourist center of the country, but offers a lot of activities. If you like outdoor sports, you'd love it here. Also the view of the lake district is absolutely stunning. You can look down the view from the hill on a sunny day; you'll fall in love with the city. A lot of cool bars to hang out as well.

Queenstown was not on the original list of places I would go In New Zealand. However, I am so glad that my plans changed. This town is one of the nicest places I have been in quite some time.
The people are genuine and kind. They all seem to come from somewhere else though. I thought that the United States was the melting pot. It seems that this place is too.
The adventure seeker is bound to find something to do here as is the person that prefers to partake of the more quiet activities.
This is a town that I could see myself moving to as it has everything that anyone could want.

Fantastic little adventure town on the south island of New Zealand. Incredible hiking and outdoor activities. The birthplace of bungee jumping, you can do the original jump off of a suspension bridge or try several others in the area. Charming town with friendly people and good food. Head over to the Milford sound and take a gorgeous cruise around the sound. The drive to Milford is worth it with waterfalls along the side of the road and great views of the New Zealand countryside. Lord of the Rings was filmed in this area, so you can see some of the areas where they filmed. Most of all, it's just a great remote area of the world with gorgeous hikes and trails to truly get away from it all.

from snow capped mountains in the distance to the lake where the Earnslaw graciously cruises on it's crystal clear water it is very beautiful & with the hottest place in NZ,Alexandra, to some of the lowest temperatures this is a place of contrast .

It really is the Adrenaline Capitol of the World! It's a fun place to go out at night and even if you're not into doing the crazy activities you can find something more mellow to do. It's a beautiful city.
