Enjoy the Spectacular Sights in Queenstown New Zealand

Queenstown, New Zealand can be found on the shores of Lake Wakatipu. This gorgeous resort town is encircled by the 7,000 foot (2,300 metres) Remarkable Mountains and the view will take your breath away. If you want to go on holiday, you may want to make Queenstown a definite destination.

Come spend your day with the wonderful citizens of Queenstown:

If you rise by 8 am, you will find a beautiful sun filled day. At this early hour it is still chilly, and the high will only reach about 14 degrees celcius. It is a perfect October day; there is still snow on the mountain tops, and more snow may fall, but as the month marches on, snow is not as likely.

You can begin your day with a delicious breakfast. If you have booked a room with a lake view, you can possibly see Lake Wakatipu which is about 40 kilometres (22 miles) long, and is between Glenorchy and Kinston. You will create memories if you meander your way along the lake from Queenstown.

If you take a drive to Wanaka, you can visit numerous lookouts. If you bring your camera, you can take pictures of your trip from Queenstown. About 25km from Wanaka, you will drive by the Cardrona Hotel, a historic hotel built in the 1800s. When you arrive in Wanaka, you will be able to walk along the edge of the water and view large trout swimming in the clear lake water. When you walk through Wanaka, you will see the beauty of the town. It is clearly evident the pride that the residents take in their little town. You will find mementos in the gift shops, and you can stop for a bite to eat in one of the cafes. Puzzling World is a great place for the kids to visit; you will find a maze, optical illusions, and fun brain buster activities.

The Cardrona Hotel has much local history, and the bar area has a view to an old gold mineshaft. If the day is chilly, there is an open fire to sit by and warm your bones. If the day is warm, you can take your lunch in the beautiful garden.

When you return to Queenstown, you can go by way of the Crown Range. The view of the Wakatipu basin view is breathtaking. If you are in the mood for a detour, Arrowtown has local arts and crafts shops.

A visit to Queenstown is spectacular, and there are numerous shops and restaurants to keep you occupied on your holiday to this beautiful New Zealand town.
