Welcome to Queenstown Airport

Get your adrenaline pumping inQueenstown! Known as the bungee and adventure capital of NewZealand,Queenstown is located on the edge of LakeWakatipu, a short 20-minute drive from the airport. This breathtaking South Island city has adventures for every season, includingsky diving, skiing, hiking, jet boating, and more; and when the scenery looks like a breathtaking painting at every turn, you’ll leave feelingrevitalised.

Popular among domestic and international visitors, hiring a car from downtown after touching down at the airport will help you efficiently explore Queenstown and the nearby areas. Tick off the ‘must dos’ on your list at your own convenience; if you’re a ‘Lord of the Rings’ fan, you’ll enjoy spotting the familiar scenery.

Lake Wakatipu will definitely be high on your ‘must visit’ list soon after arriving at the airport. Scientists rate it 99.9% pure; so, if you think it looks crisp and clean, you’re spot on. Take a spin on a water taxi, steamboat trip, or check out the Underwater Observatory to watch the local marine life in the depths of the lake. The Remarkables ski area and Coronet Peak are two of the main skiing and snowboarding locations visitors flock to from the airport. Enjoy a few days on the slopes in prime powder conditions and take in the view every time you glide down the mountain.

With much to explore, here are a few other top destinations to check out while in Queenstown and the surrounding area:

  • Skippers Canyon
  • Hollyford Track
  • Queenstown Gardens
  • Skyline Gondola
  • Kawarau Gorge
  • Milford Sound

Experience the urban culture of Queenstown in its cafes, restaurants, and pubs. The night life can continue on through the early hours of the morning for the party-goers, while smaller pubs and bars appease those looking for a light-hearted night of delicious brews and cuisine. The fast-paced atmosphere compliments the emphasis on adventure sports in the region and the upbeat lifestyle of locals and visitors alike.

For food, have a go with the menu at Sherwood (modern NZ cuisine), Fergburger (inventive and unique burger choices with a 1-2 hour wait – but it’s worth it), Botswana Butchery (fine dining with a stellar wine menu), or Winnie’s to chow down on a delicious pizza and a pint.

For a drink later on in the evening, Minus 5° Ice Bar is always a good time. Bar Up is a boutique venue known for their cocktails, while Pig & Whistle is a watering hole for cheap eats and a bit of a rowdy crowd. Stop by Searle Lane for some live music or dance party (depending on the night of the week). Little Blackwood is another favourite perched by Lake Wakatipu. Boasting stunning scenery, sip on a fresh cocktail while drinking in the views.

Also known for quality local wineries, Queenstown is home to some of the best in the business. Just a 25-minute drive from Queenstown, Peregrine Wines is a family brand that continues to receive global recognition for its wine production. Chard Farm Vineyard is another family-owned business that produces cool climate wines. Nestled in the mountains, this vineyard is a must visit for picturesque views and a satisfying afternoon of tastings. Gibbston Valley Winery is a third venue, ideal for a day of wine and relaxation.

Whether you’re heading back to the airport or driving on to your next destination, Queenstown is sure to be an unforgettable experience.
