What should I pack for Queenstown?

Whether you book tickets to Queenstown from Melbourne in the summer or winter, bring along clothes that you can wear outdoors. Hiking is a popular activity to enjoy if you book flights Melbourne to Queenstown in warmer months. Pack a pair of hiking shoes and comfortable clothes, like shorts, t-shirts, and a hoodie, that you can wear out on the trails. A daypack also comes in handy to carry a refillable water bottle, sunscreen, and insect repellent. Even if you book cheap flights to Queenstown from Melbourne in the summer, you might experience chilly evening weather. Pack a pair of jeans and a jacket that you can wear once the sun goes down.

If you book flights into Queenstown Airport (ZQN) in the winter, you'll want to bring along plenty of layers and warm clothing. Pack a heavy coat, jeans, jumpers, a hat, and a scarf. Boots are also good to have, preferably waterproof ones as you’ll likely see some snow if you book tickets to Queenstown from Melbourne between June and August. If you book cheap flights Melbourne to Queenstown with the intent to hit the slopes, you could also bring along skis if you’d prefer to use your own rather than rent from the ski resort.

Finally, it’s a good idea to pack an umbrella no matter what time of year you book cheap flights to Queenstown from Melbourne. There is a fair possibility of rain every month of the year.
