Best Things To Do in Queenstown

Queenstown offers visitors unlimited access to the great outdoors. You can bungee jump off Kawarau Bridge, mountain bike up steep embankments, tackle some serious powder at Coronet Peak; you can even be catapulted in a swing across a deep valley. But at the end of the day, you can relax your aching muscles in the Onsen Hot Pools or unwind over some Pinot Noir at a winery like Peregrine Wines or Chard Farm Winery.
