“The only way to experience the Shotover Canyons, see their beauty and feel their power, experience a journey with Shotover Jet, the world’s most exciting jet boat ride. A unique combination of beauty and power, it’s an experience like no other, blending pristine natural landscape with wall to wall canyon action from start to finish!”

Park
“For a moderate challenge, starting directly from downtown, visitors can test their legs on the Queenstown Hill Loop Track up to the ‘Basket of Dreams’, a favourite lookout spot. The three-hour walk starts and finishes on Belfast Street, and offers views over the Wakatipu basin to Cecil Peak, the Frankton Arm and Queenstown Bay.”

Beach
“Family friendly beach for swimming. Great picnic spot. Good place to bike the Frankton Track to Queenstown town centre on (about 7km) which is flat but stunning views next to the lake”

Park
“Skippers Canyon is a historic and incredibly scenic gorge that spans across 22 kilometres (13.7 miles). It can be accessed from Queenstown through the same road that leads to the Coronet Peak ski field. Skippers Canyon is a popular stopover for heritage cruises, jet boating and bungee jumping. Not for the faint hearted! ”

Beach
“Take a dip if you dare at Frankton Beach on the shores of Lake Wakatipu. The temperature of the lake doesn't vary much above 12 degrees, but it is wonderfully refreshing on a hot day in summer. Take a picnic and your towels or beach chairs, and relax on the shore side with the locals.”
