Queenstown: City Breaks
The Adventure City
Whether you’re looking for an action packed trip or a relaxed getaway, a Queenstown city break could be just what you’re looking for - whatever the time of year. If your city break in Queenstown is all about getting the adrenalin pumping, you’re in luck. Queenstown is famous world-over for its adventure activities and you can pack your days with all manner of adrenalin fuelled events. When night falls, your Queenstown adventure can move into the many lively bars and clubs that throb with a mainly young, international crowd.
If you’re after a more relaxed Queenstown city break, there’s no shortage of activities to sample. Lake cruises, golf, fishing, walking, vineyard tours, and shopping are just a few of the temping leisure activities available. When it comes to dining out, your options on a city break to Queenstown are plentiful and include a tasty array of cuisines from around the world. Accommodation can be as simple or as plush as you desire with everything from basic campsites to luxurious lakeside resorts available. Bear in mind that summer – particularly early January when many New Zealanders take their annual holidays- can get very busy so booking accommodation well in advance around this time is recommended.
The only real down side to a city break in Queenstown is getting there. Due to New Zealand’s remote location, a short city break in Queenstown is only a realistic option if you’re already based in New Zealand or in one of Australia’s main cities. Even from Australia, some cities only offer seasonal flights direct to Queenstown for the ski season so check before making plans.
