Queenstown is known as an all year round resort town - and it deserves to be! Nestled between the Remarkables mountain range and Lake Wakatipu, Queenstown is absolutely beautiful.
In winter it's all about the snow - skiing, boarding, sledging and snow mobiles; in summer it's all about the lake for water sports and the mountains for climbing and tramping and paragliding. You name it you can do it in Queenstown, and that goes for utter relaxation too.
When it comes to snow parties, Winter Fest in Queenstown is the biggest party of all! Running over a week and featuring balls, charity events, fun days and exclusive dinners not to mention lots of fun on the snow; Queenstown is the place to be.
Gay Ski Week QT is another festival that means non-stop fun. With a variety of events both on and off the snow; Queenstown really flies its party flag that week.
