More Information about Queenstown
Queenstown is a very popular tourist destination for many reasons and is fast earning an international reputation as a honeymoon retreat. It is situated around an inlet called Queenstown Bay on Lake Wakatipu surrounded by stunning mountains and beautiful scenery. It is said that there is no better place to get the combination of adventure, nature and beauty than that found here in this small but energetic city. The town is full of atmospheric restaurants that serve high quality food, busy bustling bars and laid back cafes with good quality hotels and hostels to cater for your accommodation needs.
Tourism in the city has boomed over the years and therefore the local people are more than used to cultures and accents from all over the world and they welcome this with open arms, a smile and the typical laid back attitude that can be found all around this country. As mentioned the scenery surrounding this city is breath taking and the sunrise and or sun set is a sight that has to be experienced at least one during your trip but once viewed it is doubtful that you will want to miss it again. There are many activities to be experienced here such as bungee-jumping, caving, rafting, sledging, jet boating, skiing, skydiving and hang gliding to name but a few.
Popular tourist attractions include Lake Wakatipu (carved out by a huge glacier moving from the North West 15,000 years ago and the site of many of the towns activities),Routeburn Valley (guided walks can be easily arrange to walk the tracks which offer stunning views of the mountains and surrounding area), Ziptrek (incorporating a series of zip-lines (flying foxes), this harness-clad thrill-ride takes you from treetop to treetop high above Queenstown),Bungee jumping (experience the ultimate jump off of the Kawarau Bridge home to the original 43 metre Bungee Jump) and the Canyon Swing (reach speeds of 150kph as you free fall for 60m on this the world’s highest cliff jump).
