Things to do for Budget Travelers in Queenstown

Hank Sproul is a wonderful pilot, and his flight-see of Milford Sound is fantastic. I did the Fly/Cruise/Fly option where you fly from Queenstown to Milford Sound, then take a cruise through Milford Sound on a smaller vessel than Real Journeys uses, and a flight back. Flying over the glaciers is simply breathtaking. A flight see of Milford Sound and ...

Older style, pine-tree lined and scented, beautiful course, nice greens, surrounded by stunning mountain range and lake. Friendly locals. Lovely walk for non-golfers around perimeter.

The bunker sells itself as a restaurant, but it's really that bar side that's worth checking out. Intimate and mellow in the early evening - groovy and danceworthy when the DJ cranks up. Great cocktails and a good selection of local wine too.Popular withNightlifeLuxuryFoodies

One of the attractions that I will always remember is flying with Glenorchy Air to Milford Sound and the back to Queenstown via the Mount Aspiring route. We were able to see lakes on the western side of the Alps and then Mount Aspiring, we then followed the Shotover river back to Queenstown. The change in scenery from the western ...Popular withOutdoor

I specifically chose to go kayaking with Sam and Rippled Earth because of their eco-friendly Qualmark rating and stated focus on minimizing Rippled Earth's environmental impact. Sam is a great tour guide, and he provides first class equipment.Popular withOutdoor

I always wanted to do some hiking in New Zealand so picking a track for hiking is difficult as NZ has so many gorgeous hikes. But Lake Hayes has a beautiful light hike circuit of 8km which allows visitors to explore the entire circumference of the lake. The light hike has some steep hills and sections but most of the ...Popular withOutdoorBackpackers

I went on their full-day Lord of the Rings tour. The guide we had was extremely knowledgeable about both the primary books themselves and some of the more obscure arcana found in the publication of Tolkien's notes. We did go to several shooting locales from the movies. Our guide did know some of the stunt-persons in the movies, so he ...

This place offers three dives in the Queenstown area. His scooter lesson/tour was in the local lake. There is also a submerged bridge tour that he offers; the water quality was quite bad when I went, so I cannot offer much comment beyond that. The best dive, by far, is the river drift diving tour. It is probably the most ...Popular withOutdoor

Oozing with pretention and dimly lit pseudo-poshness this upmarket wine-bar is the place to be barely seen. The wine list has more pages than the bar has seats and the fire is roaring hard enough to fuel a forge even mid summer.Popular withLuxuryFoodiesNightlife

Whereas the prices for sweets are not what I am used to, I am pleased as can be with the fudge that I purchased. It was quite tasty and the variety that they offered was quite large. I would definitely recommend a stop in to taste the fudge. But, beware. You will be sold the second the fudge touches your ...

We discovered Amisfield Winery because it was adjacent to Lake Hayes where we completed a light hike circuit of the lake. The rustic and stone architecture of the winery bistro intrigued and drew me in. Initially went inside with the intention of a quick wine taste but decided to stay longer for lunch, however the bistro was fully booked so ...Popular withOutdoor
