Check out some of our favourite things to do over the holiday weekend:
Walks & Hikes
Queenstown is home to a diverse range of walking and hiking trails suitable for all levels and ages. The regions picturesque landscapes make for perfect scenic walks, some starting right in Queenstown. Then there is the iconic Fiordland and Mount Aspiring national parks where you will find plenty of walks of varying degrees including the infamous Milford track.
Queenstown is home to the Bungy so why not throw yourself off one of our 3 ledges here, attached only to what is essentially a large rubber band! Ranging from the original commercial bungy standing a small 43m above the Kawarau river to the Nevis Bungy hanging an intimidating 134m above the Nevis river we have you covered.
Sink into your own private hot pool/jacuzzi and enjoy some Whittakers chocolate paired with a Central Otago Pinot as you take in the beautiful snow-capped mountains. Onsen hot pools are located a short 15minute drive from downtown Queenstown and each pool opens up to overlook uninterrupted views of the Shotover Canyon and its surrounding mountains.
No trip to Queenstown/Central Otago is complete without visiting one of our local wineries. Showcasing some of New Zealand’s best wines and home to famous wineries such as Mt Difficulty and Bannockburn, whether you are a wine connoisseur or merely an enthusiast it will be an afternoon well spent. If you are a little less interested in the wine and more focussed on the food and setting, then the internationally acclaimed cuisine at Amisfield is a must!
