Newest Review: ... as Mexican, Thai, European and Japanese. We managed to bag an unbooked seat at the excellent @Thai restaurant (8 Church Street), whose Thai food proved flavoursome if a little mild. DAY 2 : HERE COMES THE RAIN So far so good then. Unfortunately, my friend had been unable to make the trip due to his little one getting ill, so it was just the two of us. And on the next day, my birthday, the ... more

INTRODUCTION In our original itinerary, myself and Ms Larsbaby hadn't planned to visit Queenstown, New Zealand's self proclaimed "Global Adventure Capital", located on the South Island and surrounded by mountains. But an émigré friend of mine insisted that we go there on a 2 day trip on my birthday with him joining us for the best nightlife he's seen in the country. This didn't seem unreasonable, so we let him book the short 40 minute flight from Christchurch. I just hoped it would live up to the hype. DAY 1 : HERE COMES THE SUN Arriving in the small Queenstown airport, the compact town centre can be easily reached with a ... Read the complete review

At the beginning of a five month long travelling trip, I spent the first 3 weeks in NewZealand which was amazing; the best week was spent in Queenstown. Although NZ has a lot of fantastic mountain scenery, none of them seem as beautiful as the ones surrounding Queenstown. We got a flight from the North island as we were running out of time, we got a very good deal, paid about 100 dollars (40 pound). But there is a ferry connecting Wellington to Christchurch. If you do fly into Queenstown try and get a window seat as the scenery is amazing as you fly over the mountains and land in Queenstown. Shuttle buses are the cheapest way to get from the ...

I visited Queenstown whilst backpacking in NZ and was constantly told it was the adventure capital! This was true as Queenstown offers a huge variety of crazy things to do though a little more pricey than in other NZ cities. **Skyline and luge** The skyline up to the top of the 'hill' presented wonderful views over Queenstown, of the surrounding mountains/hills and of the sky blue lake. The ride was quick and smooth and reasonably priced (about $30 for ride and 3 sets of luge rides) At the top is a good size restaurant offering food, drinks and snacks all reasonable price too! Oo not forgetting the yummy ice-cream! The views are amazing up here especially on a ... Read the complete review

Mountain tops pierce a clear, blue sky while the sun shines on crystal, clear, blue waters. Well, not every single day but many of the 365 sunrises over Queenstown's Lake Wakatipu are a poets dream. A jewel in New Zealand' crown, on the 45th parallel, Queenstown is a mecca for tourists who come for all-seasons activities and I don't expect there's many who leave disappointed. This is a town which exists, not only because of the visitor numbers, but for honestly some of the best scenery you could expect to see anywhere in the world. It's remarkable. Actually, The Remarkables are the huge, craggy mountain range that dominate the ... Read the complete review

Queenstown is a 'small' village that boasts many famous activities like Bungee Jumping, the Shotover River, White water rafting, Paragliding, and all kinds of wondrous adventures for the budding traveller or adrenalin junkie. Queenstown is actually one of the main touristy spots of New Zealand, the area itself is expensive to shop in.. (because of the touristy thing).. but if you just love the thought of your stomach being in your mouth.. then this is the place for you! Queenstown also has the spectacular 'Remarkables', (the mountains in which you ski on), when they are capped with snow it's an awesome sight sitting up in the skyline ... Read the complete review
