Queenstown Lakes

Queenstown Lakes, home to adventure towns, crystal-clear lakes, and mountain ranges, is the place to discover the real, energised version of you among nature’s most beautiful spots.

Located just south of Canterbury, Queenstown Lakes is in the Central Otago region and is home to Wānaka, Hāwea and its namesake, Queenstown. An exciting region to explore, it’s filled with a range of action-packed activities suited for beginners and experts; there is fun for anyone who visits.

Explore Queenstown any month of the year, and you won’t regret it.

It’s also the perfect launchpad for exploring Fiordland, Stewart Island, and South Canterbury.
