Queenstown - Family Holiday Destination

Situated in New Zealand's South Island, Queenstown is an unbeatable destination for families seeking an adventurous holiday.  Surrounded by majestic mountains and nestled on the shores of Lake Wakatipu, there are endless land and water-based activities to fill your holiday with fun and adventure.

Queenstown has a reputation for being New Zealand's adventure capital - one thing's for sure, you'll never run out of fun but you may run out of time!
