One of the most popular tourist towns in the country, Queenstown is the adventure capital of New Zealand. Visitors can ski, hike, bungy jump, jet boat and drink world class Pinot Noir, all within a short distance of the picturesque town centre.
There is, however, more to Otago than Queenstown alone. If you drive the Crown Range to Wanaka, you’ll find a second adventure paradise - ski, hike and base yourself here for an adventure into the wilderness of the Mt Aspiring National Park. Head to the centre of the region central for clear skies, open plains, and a bike ride on the Central Otago Rail Trail. Relive the gold rush in the historic North Otago town of Oamaru, and don’t miss a night out in picturesque Dunedin, the main city in the region.
