What are the top things to do and see in Queenstown?
See the town from a new perspective
There are plenty of great ways to soak up the sights of Queenstown once your Blenheim to Queenstown flights arrive, but perhaps one of the best is to head to the summit of Bob’s Peak. Looming above the town and its surrounds, the summit offers panoramic views of Queenstown, Lake Wakatipu, The Remarkables and beyond. Whether you’re wanting to pack your hiking shoes and trek to the top or would rather see the city’s sights from the comfort of the Skyline Gondola, the journey to the upper reaches of Bob’s Peak is a part of the experience too.
Embark on an adventure
Known as the ‘Adventure Capital of the World’, it comes as no surprise that Queenstown is home to more than its fair share of thrilling activities. From white water rafting and skydiving, to bungy jumping, jet boating and plenty of hiking and biking trails, the town offers plenty of great ways to get the adrenaline pumping. Take to the treetops on a Ziptrek eco tour for an afternoon of ziplining through the air, tackle the popular Nevis Swing, or hire a bike and discover the scenic Queenstown Cycle Trail.
