For thrill-seekers Queenstown has it all. Skiing, white water rafting, bungy jumping, jet boating, helicopter flightseeing adventures, adventure combination packages, paraponting, mountain biking, horse riding and parachuting are all popular activities.

Leisurely favourites include the historic TSS Earnslaw steamship, Walter Peak Station, the Skyline Gondola ride to the Skyline complex including restaurant, the exciting Luge ride and the entertaining 'Kiwi Magic' movie, wine tasting at local wineries, walks, and excursions to Glenorchy and Skippers Canyon.

Arrowtown is an historic goldmining settlement about half an hour from Queenstown, with many relics of its early days. For golfing enthusiasts, a Bob Charles designed course is available at nearby Millbrook Resort. Queenstown's cosmopolitan flavour is reflected in the vibrant downtown center, where there is a myriad of restaurants and bars and the shops are open daily.
