Action and nature – Queenstown Attractions


If you’re  looking for action, family time or solitude in the stunning Southern Alps of New Zealand

Queenstown attractions will not let you down.

Queenstown attractionsFor people wanting to get a taste of  Queenstown attractions, AJ Hackett Bungy has been safely throwing people off bridges for decades now and from their original Kawerau Bridge jump( 43 metres) to their mind-blowing Nevis bungy (134 metres) you will experience a rush like never before.

Ever dropped from 15,000 feet out of an airplane with someone strapped to your back? NZONE tandem skydive can sort that for you and ensure you land comfortably enough to go and enjoy a wine tasting that afternoon.

Or consider a Challenge whitewater rafting trip through the rugged schist cliff faces of the Kawerau Gorge past old goldmining sites.

You can finish off your day sampling the best of Queenstown attractions  with a helicopter ride or a high revving Shotover jetboat trip racing through the glaciated canyons and broad shallow braided rivers with New Zealand’s original and most iconic operator.

It’s not just all about adrenaline when you look at the range of Queenstown attractions.  Witness the national symbol of New Zealand as it goes about its routine at the kiwi birdlife park, or ride up the gondola for some of the most stunning vistas of this unique alpine environment.

The Queenstown gardens offer a place of solitude and lake views as well as a sense of history for the area.  The first mayor of Queenstown planted two English Oaks in 1866. The gardens also include a substantial array of native plantings, a bowls green, tennis courts and an ice rink.   Following the lake shore track, the reserve offers walkers great views of the Queenstown lakefront, Frankton Arm, the Remarkables mountain range and across the lake to the peak of  Mt Nicholas whose farm bears its name.  Enjoy, engage, relax or get pumped.  Queenstown awaits.
