New Zealand’s premier

lake and alpine resort

Queenstown is known as the 'Adventure Capital of New Zealand', being one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country. It is a resort town in the south-west of New Zealand's South Island. Built around an inlet called Queenstown Bay on Lake Wakatipu, a long thin Z-shaped lake formed by glacial processes, has it spectacular views of nearby mountains.

Cardrona Hotel

Established in 1863, it is one of New Zealand’s oldest and most iconic hotels as one of only two remaining buildings from the Cardrona Valley gold rush era. It still operates as a hotel, bar and restaurant.


A charming gold rush village nestled below the beautiful peaks that surround the sparkling Arrow River. The characteristic town retains its historic charm through careful preservation of its colourful past. The main Buckingham Street is lined with small town heritage buildings that stretch into a tree-lined avenue of tiny miner’s cottages. The buildings house shops, galleries, bars, and restaurants, all individual, with none from an international chain.
