How much time should I spend in Queenstown?

The amount of time you spend in Queenstown entirely depends on what you plan to do, however to make the most of everything Queenstown has to offer this spring and summer, we recommend taking a leisurely trip. There’s nothing worse than feeling as though you didn't have enough time to see everything you wanted whilst on vacation. Having time allows you to not only to visit all of the premier attractions in and around Queenstown; but also to simply relax, slow down and enjoy spending time somewhere new.

Taking a wander through the streets and exploring a little is always a good idea when arriving in a new place. Heading out for a walk early on gives you a feel for this wonderful lakeside town, and allows you to check out things you may want to do in the upcoming days. The township of Queenstown is filled with unique shops, restaurants and bars and truly offers something for everyone.

To see Queenstown from a different viewpoint, catch the Skyline Gondola. The scenic ride provides impressive views over the region and shows off the township of Queenstown and Lake Wakatipu from an entirely different perspective. Skyline provides a range of exhilarating activities for the whole group.

To make the most of your relaxing getaway and for those who are less keen on an adrenaline rush, take a cruise on the TSS Earnslaw, enjoy a Wine Tour of Central Otago’s top wineries, or visit the historical sites of Arrowtown and the Kawarau Gorge bridge. More simply, take a drive in any direction and you will be sure to be greeted with a plethora of incredible camera-ready views. 

The adrenaline seeker and outdoor enthusiast can enjoy an extensive range of activities such as the Shotover Jet boat ride, Bungy Jumping and Sky Diving. Queenstown is home to a wide selection of incredible hikes, golf courses and is not far from the wonder of Milford Sound - an absolute must do for anyone.

Plan to schedule only one or two activities per day to ensure you’re not overloaded and have the time to simply enjoy your holiday and your company in this wonderful town.
