Creating vacation at a time!

Queenstown is considered the "adrenalin" capital of New Zealand and is known for its wide range of adventure & outdoor activities.  Set in a picturesque valley with the Remarkables Mountains as a backdrop,  it reminds the visitor of Aspen.  It is a four-season resort & in the winter is an alpine playground.  Summer in Queenstown (December-February).  The temperature rarely goes above 72 degrees & in winter (June-August) it ranges between 32 & 48.

Queenstown is located right next to beautiful Lake Wakatipu.

Cruise across Lake Wakatipu aboard this 100-year old steamboat to Walter Peak, a high country farm,  for dinner & viewing of a working sheep station.

Queenstown's Skyline Gondola offers sweeping views of the area from Bob's Peak.


Queenstown is the gateway to Milford Sound, safari tours to Lord of the Rings sites, jetboating, helicopter glacier tours and many other fun activities.
