The region has a unique and inspirational range of activities, experiences and must dos that attract around 1.9 million visitors every year. If you’re a Lord of the Rings fan you’ll recognize many of the locations of Middle-earth here. Queenstown is also home of the Bungy and the Shotover Jet as well as many other blood pumping adrenaline fueled adventure activities. Twenty minutes from Queenstown you’ll find Arrowtown, a gorgeous old mining town and home to some of the best pies in the country. Further along you get into the Central Otago wine region where you can sample some delicious Pinot Noirs.

Coronet Peak is the closest resort to Queenstown and is easily accessible, boasting a sealed road all the way to the car park. Coronet is not a large resort, however it does offer a great range of terrain for skiing and snowboarding. There are very limited on-snow facilities other than the main complex (which offers ski hire, lessons etc.) and as it is so close to Queenstown there is no on snow accommodation.
Night Skiing is an absolute “must do” while in Queenstown.
A true favourite with locals and visitors, providing a unique evening’s entertainment and a memorable snow experience. The M1, Shirtfront, Big Easy trails and a Magic Carpet are fully flood-lit from top to bottom, catering to every level of ability.
