Holiday Accommodation in Queenstown, New Zealand


Loves people, super confident, well educated, comes prepared and ready for anything and drop dead gorgeous; you would be forgiven for thinking it was a personal ad for a leggy blonde, however, it is the dynamic town of Queensland that ticks all those boxes, and then some. This is one destination that is fully geared for visitors. With an excellent tourist infrastructure, fantastic holiday accommodation, ranging from backpackers to the much more luxurious holiday villa, there is something for everyone. Queenstown is a holiday resort town set up for just about anything, anytime. Located on the south western side of the South Island, it is surrounded by some of the most spectacular mountain ranges, like Cecil Peak.


Things to see and do


Skydiving


For those after the thrill and excitement of throwing themselves out of a plane over some of the most beautiful places on the planet, then this one is for you. Experience the delight and the unbridled fear as you parachute out of a plane, free falling for 60 seconds, and reaching a speed of 200km/hr. Your tandem jumpmaster will control the entire dive; all you have to do is get past your own mind first.


Canyoning


Adrenalin junkies will be drooling at this extreme head rush trip of a life time. Nothing like a Big Day Out to get the blood pumping, or your nerves completely shot, depending who you are. Get on down to the majestic Mt. Aspiring National Park, serious Lord Of the Rings Country and you will have the thrilling chance to slide, abseil, zip line or jump down the Bridal Stream. Canyoning is basically travelling down creeks or streams in as many different ways as possible – walking, swimming, abseiling or even scrambling.


River Surfing


If anyone thought they were coming to this town to relax in their holiday house near the lake and peacefully read a book and sleep the time away, they’re in the wrong destination. River surfing is much like body boarding in the sea, except you need a helmet and a wetsuit for this one. Cruise down the river at warp speed, riding the rapids and surfing the waves. Guides will stop at specific surf spots so they can teach you how to stand up on your board on sections of this incredible river.


Jet Boating


This sport is a bit like doing the Grand Prix at warp speed while you hang on to the side of a boat for dear life and slice through the water at alarming and exciting rates. Skimming over the shallow waters, weaving in and out of ragged cliff faces and sheer canyon walls, this is an adrenalin rush like no other. Visit the locations where they shot the Lord of the Rings movie and experience the magnificent scenery of this amazing part of the world.


Lake Fishing


There may very well never be another chance to get out and experience such exciting fishing opportunities such as these, with such a magical backdrop. The beauty of Queenstown is that you can go down to your holiday house any time of the year, winter or summer and you will have so much to do, you may need to take a few quiet days in a rustic holiday cottage in the mountains to relax before you make your way home. The joys of fishing are there to be enjoyed 365 days a year, come sun or snow, why not make it an extra special fishing trip and book with Stu Dever Fishing Charters – a professional registered fishing guide; Stu has more than 20 years experience and will give you the ultimate fishing holiday.


Hot Air Ballooning


What could be more romantic than a hot air balloon trip at sunrise over Lord of the Rings country? Effortless, indulgent and spectacular, hot air ballooning is a rare, once in a life time chance to see the resplendent region from above. The one hour trip will take you floating over the valleys between Queenstown and Arrowtown, and will bring you to the landing site where you will be served a fabulous champagne breakfast, which is rather a fitting way to celebrate your spectacular balloon journey.


Snowshoeing


Snowshoeing is actually just walking in snowy conditions. The shoes fit on to normal boots and off you go. But, how about the chance to explore the New Zealand wilderness of the winter mountains of Queenstown by foot? Get out of your holiday rental and away from all the other tourists and walk through the back country of Queenstown in the winter. Suitable for all ages and fitness levels, groups can be small and move as slow as you prefer, or you can custom book your tour, with as many people as they can take. Don’t forget your sunglasses!


Climate

Even though Queenstown is at rather a high altitude up there in the southerly mountains, the climate is classified as an oceanic climate. Lovely long and warm summer days from September to March, reach at times, 30 C in the middle of summer. The winter months are chilly and get cold, with temperatures dropping to zero and below, but that brings loads of snow, which is what the winter sports enthusiasts are after. The ultimate alpine, year round destination, all times of the year are the perfect time to book out your holiday house in Queensland.


Getting there from the UK


Visitors to Queenstown will arrive at Queenstown International Airport and then you can pick up a rental car and self drive to your holiday accommodation. If you are traveling in the mountains and are going to be experiencing a real adventure holiday, don’t forget to make arrangements before hand to get a 4x4, as some of the mountain paths will require you to have one to gain access. Use Queenstown as your departure point as you explore the region, and book your holiday rental in town, and take day and overnight trips out into the magnificent country side.

Cosy place, with everything you need. Super close to the city, walking distance from surrounding food and attractions.

Great location away from the business of Queenstown but with stunning views of the lake and mountain

4 of 5
Great location away from the business of Queenstown but with stunning views of the lake and mountains. House was very well kitted out and had everything you need. The Kitchen and deck area are particulay impressive. The bedrooms and bathrooms are a bit dated but very well kept and perfectly good. We really loved staying here.
