History

Queenstown was so named because its beautiful scenery was seen as "fit for Queen Victoria". After European settlers arrived, Queenstown became a gold mining town in the 1860s. However, in more recent history, the city has become famous for its extreme sports scene, with the world's first ever commercial bungy jump taking place in Queenstown in 1988.

Snow bunnies will love travelling here between June and October because the ski fields offer some epic slope action. However, if you're not able to make it during the snow season, you can take a stroll along the shores of Lake Wakatipu any time of year. With crystal clear lakes and the mountains as a backdrop, the sight doesn’t get much better than this.
