Approximately a half hour’s drive from Queenstown, Gibbston is known for its award winning wines, fine cheese and natural beauty. The Gibbston Valley is also known as the Valley of Vines; many of its vineyards are award winning wine producers and many visit the area for a unique viticultural experience. Apart from its superb wines, Gibbston is also known for its delicious cheese. Some of the New Zealand’s best cheeses are produced in this area.

Another point of interest is the Kawarau Bridge, the world’s first commercial bungy site. Whilst many take the leap of faith, there is an option to spectate from a viewing platform.
