Sheltered in an inlet of Lake Wakatipu, the resort town of Queenstown enjoys a strong reputation for its adventuring and skiing opportunities.
Kick off your visit on the 24th (Tue): whizz through the canopy at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, then relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas, then get the adrenaline pumping with an extreme tour, and finally contemplate the long history of Fallen Soldiers Memorial. On your second day here, take in nature's colorful creations at Queenstown Garden, then have some family-friendly fun at Fear Factory Queenstown, then look for all kinds of wild species at Kiwi Birdlife Park, and finally have some family-friendly fun at Skyline Queenstown.

Plan my Queenstown trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
