Christmas in Queenstown

9/10/2018 | Posted in Discover Queenstown

With plenty of hot weather and long days, celebrating Christmas in Queenstown is something special. With so much on offer, everyone, from the kids to grandma and grandpa, will have something to do.

The days leading up to Christmas are always filled with the hustle and bustle of preparations. The township is well decorated and provides an array of boutiques and markets to get in your last bit of shopping. Alternatively, you can avoid the commotion altogether and head out on an adventure; take your pick from kayaking, jet boating, rafting through the Skippers Canyon and many many more.

From the lakeside beach to the rolling hills and mountains, the Queenstown landscape is packed with perfect secret spots to spend the day. If you feel like getting out and about in nature on Christmas day, pack a picnic and your sunhat and set out to enjoy time with your loved ones in a remarkable setting. Feast, play games and be merry.

For those of you not wanting the stress of preparing a Christmas feast while on holiday, there are plenty of restaurants in downtown Queenstown that are open and offering delicious 3 course set menus for Christmas Day. A popular favourite is the Stratosfare Restaurant at Skyline. Enjoying either a sumptuous lunch or dinner, accompanied by live music with an incredible vista overlooking Queenstown, is something not to miss.  

No matter how you choose to spend your day, having a comfortable and homely base is key to enjoying the celebrations.
