You don't have to be full of local knowledge to have an amazing time in Queenstown, but you should know a few basic details before you jet off.
Wellington, New Zealand's capital, is 400 miles (644 kilometers) to the northeast of Queenstown.
This area of Otago is home to about 10,000 people.
Remember to bring a good camera if you're going on an outing to Skyline Gondola. The spectacular views you'll witness while coasting over the landscape need to be recorded! Seeking some more ideas? Pack a book, find an inviting grassy spot and enjoy the natural garden aromas at Queenstown Gardens. But that's not all there is. You'll come across quite a few things to see and do at Steamer Wharf! This much-loved tourist precinct is teeming with attractions and activities to fill your day.
Arriving at Queenstown International Airport (ZQN)? Once you hop off the plane, the middle of Queenstown is about 4 miles (6 kilometers) away. Hail down a taxi and enjoy the ride — your vacation has just begun!
