Adventure Capital of the World – Queenstown, NZ. A reputation earned through the actions of a number of locally residing thrill seekers who have developed several unbelievable, adrenalin stirring, sanity-reducing adventures in a wildly exciting environment.

Bungy jump, skydive, climb mountains, ski, raft, kayak, fish, horse ride, cycle, walk, take a scenic flight, sail, river surf, jet boat, hang-glide, snowmobile, snowboard, dance, go canyoning, heliski, parapente.
Queenstown has over the years, quietly expanded into all sorts of attractions including new wineries, art galleries, arts trails and challenging golf courses.



Downtown Queenstown is a compact and picturesque shopping area where you’ll find international labels alongside the best in New Zealand designs. It’s an imaginative and vibrant retail scene. Shops are open all day and much of the evening, 365 days of the year. Many hours can be happily whiled away in Queenstown’s attractive town centre.

Dining is a serious business in Queenstown and there are more than 100 great eateries to choose from. Nothing goes better with a great meal than a great wine and central otago is well known for great wines.



Top restaurants, stylish cafés, family eateries, sushi bars, wineries . . . you choose the style. During balmy summer and autumn days and evenings alfresco diners pack sidewalk cafés, restaurant gardens and wineries to enjoy great food and wine, warm conditions and 10 pm sunsets. In winter, roaring log fires, and hearty menus warm restaurants and the beverage lists respond to icy outside temperatures adding mulled wine. It's the perfect time of the year for one of Central Otago's famous Pinot Noirs.

From rugged mountains to a wild and deserted coastline, golden hill country to crystal alpine lakes, the Southern Lakes region is one of the most diverse and physically beautiful on earth. It’s easy to see why New Zealand film director Peter Jackson chose this region for so many Lord of the Rings locations.



Fans will recognise the Misty Mountains, Isengard, the Ford of Bruinen, Lothlorien, and among locations Rohan and the Pillars of Argonath. Stunning, movie-inspiring scenery aside, there’s a deep cultural bent to this area. Meandering wine regions, villages rich in history, high country sheep farming and primordial world heritage areas sit alongside international standard tourism resorts.
