Queenstown – New Zealand

Queenstown, Otago, New Zealand

Queenstown is a small town situated in the south of the South Island on Lake Wakatipu with a population of about 20,000. It is regarded as the “Adventure Capital” of New Zealand with jet boating, bungy jumping and skiing being popular pastimes with visitors. It is one of my favourite places in New Zealand as there are many wonderful sites nearby such as Milford and Doubtful Sounds, Lakes Hayes, Te Anau, Wanaka and Manapouri and it is the gateway to the West Coast glaciers.
