No-one's ever visited Queenstown and said, "I'm bored!" Looking like a small town, but with the energy of a small city, Queenstown offers a mountain of outdoor activities. Most are centered on the lake and nearby rivers, with white-water rafting, sledging and jet-boating all great ways to get wet, while bungy jumping and tandem parachuting are exciting ways to fly.
While its innumerable activities, great facilities and magnificent scenery make Queenstown a huge destination for travelers, you'll find its cafes, bars and restaurants are remarkably laid-back. Perhaps one of the most relaxed experiences you'll have in New Zealand is finding yourself a lakeside bench at dusk to immerse yourself in one of the country's most exquisite sunsets.
