About Queenstown

Queenstown, sensational in any season…

The first people to discover Queenstown’s rare beauty were Maori pounamu (jade) hunters. Then came the gold miners, in search of another kind of treasure.

Today Queenstown is treasured for its magnificent scenery, adventure opportunities and luxury lifestyle. From crystal clear Lake Wakatipu across to The Remarkables mountain range, Queenstown’s environment is majestic, awe inspiring and almost unbelievable.

In any season, you can count on stylish accommodation, designer shopping and marvellous cuisine experiences. Queenstown’s compact downtown area is a cosmopolitan hub that’s relaxed during the day and huge fun at night.

Summer in Queenstown

Summer is relatively hot and very dry. At 45° south, the summer days are long with dawn breaking as early as 5.30am and the sun setting as late as 10.30pm.

It’s a fantastic time to experience a scenic helicopter flight or one of our unique Lord of the Rings flight to take in the views. Or climb into the hills as high as you dare for massive views of the mountains, lake, rivers and valleys.

Autumn in Queentown

Autumn is a luxurious, relaxed time against a backdrop of brilliant reds and golds. The leaves usually begin to turn in late March and early April. By April’s end, the fall colours are in full swing.

Stable, clear weather allows most outdoor pursuits. Take a helicopter flight and walk in the mountain by day; snuggle up by a roaring open fire at night. Temperatures swing from below zero to around 25°C, so you’ll need a full range of clothing.

Winter in Queenstown

Winter is a magical season of snow capped mountains and clear blue skies. Experience heli-skiing with Heliworks: exclusive skiing in the best high-country of Southern New Zealand’s alpine playgrounds With nothing but deep, pristine powder snow, and the challenge of making your own unique tracks. Encounter the sheer, empty space and face the challenge!

The town is alive with the happy sounds of people reliving the day’s skiing. International visitors rub shoulders with locals, united in their passion for snow sport. Dress warmly – winter temperatures seldom reach higher than 7° C and often fall below zero.

Spring in Queenstown

As the snow recedes, the gardens and golf courses defrost and bloom. The temperature ranges from 8° C to 15° C, and the weather can change abruptly – sunny one moment, spring showers the next. Queenstown’s skiing is often at its best in spring, while down in the valley the lakeside beaches begin to attract sun seekers. In town, the restaurant tables creep onto the sidewalks. Dress in layers, so that you can adapt quickly to temperature changes.
