Queenstown is a resort town in Otago on New Zealand's south island which is famous for both its adventure sports and its stunning topography. Situated on the glacial Lake Watakipul, Queenstown is surrounded by the Remarkables mountain range, home to the area's highest peaks and many of its high-adrenalin pursuits.

Queenstown is a popular destination for skiers, offering snow fields across Coronet Peak, Treble Cone, Cardrona Alpine Resort and the Remarkables. The surrounding countryside has been featured in several Hollywood films, most famously as Middle Earth in the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

During the summer months, Queenstown is as high octane as ever. Bungee jumping, white water rafting, skydiving and jet boating are all popular activities for those seeking an adrenalin rush with milder pursuits like eco-tours, wine-tasting and hiking available for those seeking downtime. Hotels in Queenstown on the waterfront offer commanding views over the 'Misty Mountains' and ready access to lake cruises.

After hours, Queenstown city center enjoys a lively bar and restaurant scene. Once a year the International Jazz Festival fills the town's clubs with live jam sessions and the month-long festival Summer Daze gives travelers a different taste of the region's arts and culture every day.

Queenstown is served by Queenstown Airport in Frankton, used mostly for domestic flights from Auckland and Christchurch, with an increasing number of international flights from Australia. Frankton is seven kilometers from Queenstown and home to the district's main shopping and sports centers.
