Queenstown Backpacker Information – Sights, Adventure and Night Life
Where do you start with Queenstown backpacker information? The area has been a mecca for young and old travellers on a budget since the 1970’s.
The stunning alpine scenery alone is a big drawcard. The mountains, rivers and lakes with their clear water and the huge range of uncrowded terrain is a natural playgound for outdoor lovers. The range of adventurous activities on offer from solo hiking and climbing and mountainbiking to the busy AJ Hackett bungy launching pads, Shotover Jet and Challenge white water rafting operations ensure you’ll never have a dull moment. How about a tandem skydive from 15,000 feet with NZOne? You’ll be dealing with some of the finest operators in the industry when you choose any of the Queenstown Adventure group.
The amount of Queenstown backpacker information from the local i-Site and the operators themselves will provides visitors with a huge range range of choices for accommodation, activities and night life. There are a number of hostels which offer everything from shared bunkrooms to the more comfortable “flash packer” self contained private apartments. Many are right in town enabling visitors to wander about sampling the many bars and cafe’s in central Queenstown. Another option are the campgrounds with communal kitchens enabling campervans or people with tents to still enjoy the town without having to travel far.
The number of diverse cultures who make Queenstown home ensure a range of eateries and bar life which makes the Queenstown downtown area party central most nights of the week. It’s hard not to meet new people and share the stories of your adventures while sipping on an expresso or a happy hour drink.
If you’re looking for good Queenstown backpacker information, the trip advisor website is a great start, otherwise word of mouth will lead you to the best value activities and ensure a lively memorable time.
