Queenstown & Otago (South Island)


Queenstown & Otago (South Island)


Queenstown and the wider Otago region, a scenic 1.5-hourflight from Auckland, epitomize adventure and natural beauty.

Here, you can experience the adrenaline rush of bungee jumping, skydiving, jet boating, or simply relaxing with a world-famous Fergburger on the iconic Lake Wakatipu waterfront in Queenstown. Indulge in the region's gourmet dining scene with fine restaurants and vineyard tours.  

Acting as a base for daytrips to the stunning landscapes of Fiordland National Park (where you will find the breathtaking Milford and Doubtful Sounds), you could also take a scenic cruise on the easier to navigate Lake Wakatipu.

In winter, the area transforms into a winter wonderland offering skiing and snowboarding and the annual Winter Pride event. Simply a must-see destination for travelers, Queenstown and Otago cater to all interests, from thrill-seekers to nature enthusiasts.
