Queenstown Holidays Overview


Queenstown might look and sound like a small town, but if you look at the energy and range of activities that it offers, it is anything but so. It boasts of a mesmerizing setting across the Lake Wakatipu and is undoubtedly known to be one of the most beautiful places on earth. Some know about it because of its proximity to the exotic Milford Sound while others have heard of it because of the Hobbits (most of the scenes of the Lord of the Rings trilogy were filmed here), but there is no doubt about the fact most people have heard about Queenstown at one point of their life or the other.

In fact, Queenstown has become a victim of its own popularity as most tourists complain that the place has become too overcrowded due to the huge influx of tourists that visit this exotic resort town each year. However, no matter how crowded the place seems to be, it still manages to seduce and captivate its visitors with its authentic rural beauty, idyllic natural settings and a range of activities such as bungee jumping, gliding, skydiving, skiing, rafting and jet-boating.

Once tourists enjoy the adventure activities and natural attractions to their heartís content at the self proclaimed adventure capital of New Zealand, there are a dazzling array of laid back cafes, chic restaurants and bustling bars to choose from as well.

2. Arrowtown

www.arrowtown.org.nz
What is it? Arrowtown sits at the edge of the Otago Goldfields and was one of the country's biggest gold towns in its day. It still has reminders of the gold rush days with little miners' cottages along the tree lined streets, historic wooden buildings, and 19th century-style shops, preserved as they were during the gold rush. There are the interesting remains of a Chinese settlement, with interpretive signs, nestled along the banks of Bush Creek where gold was panned. The Chinese diggers often worked through the remains of previous miner's claims in search of undetected fine gold and were subjected to much prejudice by the other diggers. The Visitors Centre contains the excellent Lake District Museum that has a small display on local history and gold mining. Hours of Operation: Phone:

 

 

3. The Fox and Franz Josef Glaciers

www.glaciercountry.co.nz
What is it? Nowhere else in the world, outside the polar regions, can one see glaciers so close to the sea, extending more than eight miles (13km) from the highest peaks of precipitous mountains to the valley floor and surrounded by rainforest. The Fox and Franz Josef Glaciers are the two most famous glaciers, a small part of the Westland National Park, and the two small townships near to each are good bases from which to explore the area, although offering an expensive range of accommodation and cafes. They each have a good Visitors Centre with displays on the formation of the glaciers, the ice movement and the history of the region. The giant screen at Franz Josef shows the brilliant film on Glacier Country, 'Flowing West'. The glaciers are moving at an average rate of three feet (1m) a day, but the Frans Josef can move up to an incredible 16ft (5m) in one day. A wide range of companies offer guided trips to explore the spectacular ice formations, taking visitors beyond the looming terminal face of the glacier and up onto the mighty rivers of ice, through the carved passageways and channels. There are also scenic flights among New Zealand's highest peaks and over the glaciers, and snow landings, one of the best ways to appreciate the magnitude and splendour of the area; or a chance to combine a flight and ice walking on a guided heli-hike excursion. Hours of Operation: Phone:
