At Queenstown Gardens you can admire the native and exotic plant life, and then play a game of tennis or go ice skating. The garden offers relaxing lake and mountain views from its location on a peninsula of Lake Wakatipu. First founded by the Borough Council of Queenstown in 1887, it has since been an important site for community and sporting events. Athletic types should be sure to make a stop here, where they can play a favorite sport or try something new like lawn bowling or frisbee golf.

  • Take a walk around the peninsula (it's only about a mile and all by the lake) and then come back via the gardens. They are beautiful especially the rose garden and the huge monkey puzzle tree.

  • Short walk from town centre to the gardens. Nice and relaxing. Several benches for people to sit on and have a snack or just rest.

  • Delightful, but not visited by many! Queenstown has become anonymous with adventure activities which has meant that places such as Queenstown Gardens are not visited by many. We are glad we visited....  more

  • Stumbled across the gardens when going for a stroll about. Third time I’ve been to Queenstown, and was first time at gardens. It was a really lovely walk around the lake. The playground was fun for kids. People enjoying the frisbee golf course. Can definitely recommend for the views, atmosphere and a lovely walk in general. I would return.
  • Beautiful garden. Childrens playground at the start of the park and a nice lakeside stroll from the Queenstown end to the the opposite direction. Along the way, you will come to an exposed outcrop which provides an excellent view of the mountains. It gets windy at this juncture. On the return leg, you can walk on the inner side which gives a very different experience with beautiful pine trees, a rose garden and well kept grounds. A short but enjoyable experience and can be a good place to picnic as well.
  • Beautiful gardens located in the centre of Town on the edge of Lake Wakatipu. Great place for a stroll or family picnic. It has free parking.

  • A very scenic place to walk around and unwind and take in the sights. There is also frisbee golf to play and great views of the park and Lake Wakatipu.
