About Queenstown

Queenstown is nestled between the verdant native Fiordland beech forests, the bountiful plains of Canterbury, the architecturally blessed city of Dunedin and the expansive, agrarian lamb and dairy district Southland. Queenstown is New Zealand's resort, holiday, adventure and vacation jewel.

Queenstown is often referred to as The Adventure Capitol of the World, with adrenalin-junkies thriving on a myriad of activities, including jet-boating, bungy jumping, rafting, high-country trout fly fishing, paragliding, alpine skiing, mountain climbing and wilderness hiking.

Queenstown is New Zealand's resort, holiday, adventure and vacation jewel. More than 1.2 million people visit Queenstown each year, approximately half from overseas. Queenstown real estate values have increased dramatically in the past decade, as Kiwis and international property investors focussed their attention on the region as a safe, stable investment and retirement opportunity.

Several of New Zealand's world-renowned hiking tracks commence at the top of Lake Wakatipu, on which Queenstown is situated.
