Queenstown

Built around Queenstown Bay on Lake Wakatipu on the South Island of New Zealand, Queenstown is an enchanting combination of natural beauty, epic film locations from the Lord of the Rings trilogy, beautiful spas & resorts, exceptional cuisine, and a range of adventure sports, including the world’s first Bungy jump, jet boating, river rafting, hiking, horse trekking, cycling and skiing in the winter.

Queenstown is the gateway to Milford Sound, a breathtaking fjord that Rudyard Kipling once called the “eighth wonder of the world.” Visitors can take guided tours by bus, drive themselves, or even fly to Milford Sounds from here. For those familiar with the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit series of films, Glenorchy, a 45 minute drive from Queenstown, is a must visit. Glenorchy is the filming location for several of the mythical destinations in the film series, including Isengard, Amon Hen, the Lothlorien Forest, the Misty Mountains, and Ithilien. Other key sights close to Queenstown include Arrowtown, with its rich gold mining history, Lake Wanaka, the Lindis Pass, and Lake Pukaki, which is famous for its turquoise blue waters and spectacular views of Mount Cook.
